      This was a hit. I already had an oversized martini glass and served the cocktail sauce in a small martini class. Very easy and tasty appetizer w/ a great appearance.

      I was expecting something more flavorful, I think. More like real Bloody Mary, I guess. It was good, not mind blowing. Rinsed some shrimp and tasted, comparing them to the unrinsed ones and salt wasn't a problem. So I would not rinse in order to keep some of the flavor. I will add more vodka and celery salt next time.
