Stupid question: Is the consistency meant to be thin for a drink or thick for a dip for the shrimp?

I made this in small servings - they were very well received. Thanks for a great recipe.

Uuum... I haven't tried THIS recipe, YET, but I'm sure it's EXCELLENT. The only thing is, as a Hispanic male who has been to Mexico, many, many times to visit family I can say only one thing. This is NOT Mexican shrimp cocktail. Mexican shrimp cocktail is NOT made with cocktail sauce. It's cloud/clear from the lime and clam juice. :)

Excellent recipe! Simple to prepare and it tastes fresh and delicious my family loves it. A new favorite.

I've been making a shrimp cocktail almost identical to this for years after ordering one in the Mexican border town of Algodones and loving it. Like one other reviewer suggested, I also use Clamato juice or a V8/Clamato mix and I also add celery and garnish with cilantro. I usually make a big batch so it lasts in the fridge for a couple of days. For that reason I don't add the shrimp and avocado until I serve individually.

This is spot on to what we have in Algodones Mexico. Absolutely perfect. Thanks for sharing. I've tried many times to duplicate it but ... this one takes the cake.
