Shrimp Shooters

Share this:

Is it an appetizer? Is it a cocktail? It’s really a little bit of both…but whatever you want to call these Shrimp Shooters – you’re going to love them!

The cocktail part of these Shrimp Shooters is similar to a bloody mary, but a little lighter and not as spicy. Just some vodka, tomato juice and spices mixed together to make a tasty shot for dipping your shrimp in.

No boiled shrimp here, either. I like them roasted. It’s easier, tastes better and you can get more flavor on the shrimp instead of just a boiling them in water. The recipe for these Shrimp Shooters can also be doubled or tripled and made in a pitcher for a larger crowd, or if you just want a bigger drink than a shot. As long as you get that roasted shrimp on the glass for garnish, it’s all good.
