Normally I just throw together horseradish with ketchup and maybe a little fresh squeezed lemon juice. I decided to look up a real recipe to see how to make cocktail sauce. Where else would I go except (who knew?). I stuck with the classic because I didn't have any vodka or tequila, but I'll save these recipes for another day. Very quick and simple but flavorful blend for your shrimp cocktail.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add ketchup, light chili powder, cayenne pepper, prepared horseradish, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and the minced garlic clove.
  2. Vigorously mix ingredients with a large wooden spoon until your sauce is even and consistent.
  3. Transfer to a dipping bowl and serve immediately or let chill for atleast an hour.
  4. Chilling blends and sharpens the flavors and may make sauce spicier.
