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

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.

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

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.
