Recipe does not include chill time for the shrimp. I have never made this recipe because I do not like hard liquor but it is definitely a good recipe for someone who does. It truly does look delicious!

This method for shrimp cocktail was truly delicious! I made it for New Year's Eve and my "vegan" friend ate about a dozen shrimp! Poaching the shrimp in the wine is key. Thanks for posting.
