“I prepare this refreshing shrimp cocktail for my family a lot during the hot summer days. Being a Mexican family, we always add Mexican hot sauce (such as Valentina® or Tapatio®) and serve with saltine crackers on the side. The trick is to start with well-chilled shrimp, ketchup, and tomato juice cocktail so it can be ready after only chilling 1 hour in the fridge. Top with additional hot sauce and avocado slices if desired. Enjoy!”

This was my first time ever making Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, my Mexican boyfriend requested it. I doubled the Clamato, added 1/2 cup of onion instead of 1/3 cup, and added 1 clove minced garlic. It was success!! Him & his friend devoured the whole thing in one sitting. Served with saltine crackers, extra lime & extra avocado on the side. Thank u Thank u!!! This is a keeper.

Great authentic recipe! I add a little shrimp water (water used to boil shrimp) to the mix as well. Try it with picante Clamato next time for added flavor. Thanks for such a refreshing recipe. This is a keeper.

Made this recipe for a New Years Eve party and it was the hit of the party! I plan to make it again and try some of the variations. My friends could not get enough of it. Good thing I had made a double batch.
