Love this recipe. Fresh with a bit if a bite. Thanks for posting. It will be that go to appetizer when you want something special.

I made this to share with friends at a summer concert in the park. I used one pound of crabmeat and no shrimp. I drained off the juice before serving, and served the crab as a dip with tortilla chips. Very decadent with wonderful flavor. I used all tomato juice and no clam juice.

This is very much like the Cocktail i have been making for years. The only difference is I use oysters instead of the crabmeat and shrimp, making it an oyster cocktail (Cocktail de oystiones). AND I use chopped jalapenos to give it heat!
