Not bad in a pinch - I cut the recipe in half and used only 2 tsp. of light brown sugar as I don't like sweet cocktail sauces. Since I like more heat I upped the horseradish to my liking.

This was much too sweet of a sauce! Next time I will put a fraction of the sugar! I do like the combination of other ingredients, however, and will try this one again next time we have seafood.

By no means the "perfect cocktail sauce" - not unless you like it SWEET, that is. I started out not adding any - and left it that way. I also felt it needed a more tomato-y taste so I ended up using equal amounts of the ketchup and the Heinz 57. A couple of squirts of Worcestershire sauce improved this as well.

This was ok but a little too sweet for me. I would cut the sugar down. It worked in a pinch.

Really good, but I completely left out the brown sugar. For us it was perfect without it. Thank you!

This is the best one I have found yet! Loved the sweet and spicy flavor of it. I made no changes. Perfect as is.
