My family is attempting to use fewer commercially prepared items, and I was needing some cocktail sauce for later this evening. I literally just finished making this, and it couldn't have been any easier. It tastes so much fresher and cleaner than the supermarket variety; I can't believe I didn't try making this earlier. I made this using ketchup Copycat Heinz Ketchup.

This is a super easy to make sauce, I had all the ingredients right at home. I used 2TBS extra hot horseradish and gave it a nice kick. Thanks for posting Darlene!

This was an easy and tasty recipe. Next time I might up the amounts of lemon juice and horseradish. It was a little sweet for my taste and this might help cut that sweetness.

Excellent! Needed a small portion (I halved the recipe) of this because I rarely buy cocktail sauce and when I do it usually doesn't taste good after it is in the refrigerator too long. Very nice taste and you can make it as spicy as you like it. I did add some tobasco sauce as we prefer a little extra spice. Yum!!

This was a great cocktail sauce. Easy to make and went really well with shrimp. Thanks Darlene Summers for a nice treat. Made for Cookbook Tag.

This is nice to put together at the last minute to go with boiled shrimp. Half a batch is enough for our family. Thanks for sharing!
