"A great, quick, and easy cocktail sauce for shrimp. Also works well on clams, lobster, and other shellfish. The vodka adds an extra kick, but is not overpowering sauce. The fresh tomatoes add a more natural taste to the cocktail sauce." — GIFUOH

peeled and cubed horseradish root
2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers
Louisiana-style hot sauce
fresh ground black pepper
Used readymade cocktail sauce, added Grey Goose vodka as well as extra horseradish and cayenne for a very spicy, delicious sauce. Company loved it!
Made this last night because my hubby absolutely LOVES shrimp cocktail and I wanted to make a sauce that was a bit out of the ordinary. He really liked this a lot. Didn't have any tomatoes in the house but just the catsup worked fine. Also did not have any celery so I subbed with chopped green bell pepper. Delicious! Thanks so much!
Wow. I made this to go with the popcorn shrimp from this site. My guest loved both but this sauce made it over the top. If I could give more stars I would. Everyone raved about it. Thank you so much for posting.
