This cocktail treat is a tasty marriage of two of my favorites, shrimp, and Bloody Marys.

Ingredients

1 lemon, juiced, plus lemon wedges for garnish
16 jumbo shrimp, cooked and cleaned
Salt
1 (28-ounce) can chunky style crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons horseradish
2 tablespoons Worcestershire, eyeball it
2 teaspoons hot sauce, eyeball it
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
4 shots ice cold vodka
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

Squeeze half of the lemon over the shrimp and sprinkle them with a little salt. Mix together the remaining lemon juice, tomatoes, horseradish, Worcestershire, hot sauce, celery, vodka and pepper in a small pitcher. When ready to serve, pour the sauce into martini glasses. Hook the shrimp, 4 per glass, around edges. Make garnish wedges of lemons to hook on the edges of the glasses and serve.

Tip: Chill some martini glasses in your freezer the morning of your party to serve these cocktails.
