Easy and delicious! I cut down on the serving size and since I like my cocktail sauce a little more on the hot side and a little less sweet I decreased the amount of sugar to suit my tastes. I would suggest starting off with a small amount and adding in until you find the taste you like.

This would of been a good sauce except for the sugar. I made it for a dinner party and it was very sweet. I ended up using bottle cocktail sauce with a little doctoring up. I would not put in any sugar.

Delish!! This was so good. I used ketchup and added extra hot sauce. Since I used ketchup instead of the chile sauce I cut down on the sugar.

Very good. I adjusted ingredients to taste.

I made this three hours before the luncheon. The ladies loved it and the men felt it needed more kick. Maybe if I had made it earlier, the horseradish would be stronger. Either way, it has be much fresher taste than premade sauce and it was loved by all.

Perfection is the best adjective I could come up with to describe this wonderful cocktail sauce. Thanks so much Sara!

Don't be afraid of the spice. I added lots of extra hot sauce and my whole family loves it! My wife will not eat shrimp anymore unless I have this to dip it in. The horseradish is perfect, and the key to this recipe. FANTASTIC
