Heat It Up Cocktail Sauce

Heat It Up Shrimp Cocktail Sauce

 Heat It Up Cocktail Sauce

 1/2 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup vodka  (or as much as you want, but this works pretty well)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce  (or as much as you want, I like this)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley ( any parsley will work, but I like this)
1 cup your favorite cocktail sauce
1/8 cup finely chopped green onions ( here again, more or less, I like this)

  •  Heat to boiling tomato juice, pepper sauce & vodka – Heat should be medium to high, watch it to tell when it starts to boils
  • Stir in sugar
  • Reduce heat a couple of notches
  • Simmer uncovered 5 minutes, stir every so often
  • Stir in celery salt and parsley

Pour over about 1 1/2 pound devined, peeled cooked  shrimp. (thawed shrimp)

Cover and put in fridge for about 3 hours.

Mix the cocktail sauce and green onions.  Pour into a small serving bowl.

Remove shrimp from the marinade with a slotted spoon.

Serve the shrimp with the cocktail sauce.


  1. This recipe looks awesome. I can’t wait to try it. Do you only use the white part of the green onions or do you use the green too? Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Hi Sissy, I just used the white part of the onion, but I bet it would taste great either way. Try it with the greens and let us know what you think.
