All I can say is yum! This item is in heavy rotation at the parties that I throw.
First of all, who doesn't love shrimp cocktail? Second of all, who can resist a single serve appetizer in an adorable mini martini glass?
They look great as the focal point of any appetizer station and they are a cinch to throw together.
First things first - the recipe. The original inspiration from this came from a Betty Crocker recipe. I have modified mine slightly - I leave out the vodka and replace it with additional tomato juice & hot pepper sauce, go heavy handed on the parsley & olives and throw in a splash of the olive juice. I also like to sometimes replace the tomato with V-8 or Clamato juice (both of which are tasty substitutions).
I garnish each individual serving with celery and a toothpick with three green olives on it.
They are adorable, delicious, self serving and easy to hold. Serve up some at your next soiree.
