This is a great cocktail sauce recipe straight from the heart of the Rockies (Aspen, Colorado), via Cape Cod. The tequila gives it a good kick! This recipe yields a large amount, you may want to half or quarter it.

Oh my gosh this is the BEST! My husband usually does not like liquer added to any recipe so when I pulled out the tequila he freaked. I tasted the recipe before adding the tequila and it was average... I added the tequila and WOW!!! You DO NOT taste the tequila it just gives a great zip! My husband was truely impressed! I guess that is why they call it a "COCKTAIL" sauce... you NEED the alcohol! I decreased my recipe down to 5 servings... Great! Read More

This is just too good!! I spread some cream cheese out on a plate top with the sauce and then top it all with cooked salad shrimp and serve with crackers. Everyone raves and there's never any left!! Read More

Absolutely fantastic! Suggest you add a touch more horseradish. And let it sit in the fridge for a few hours to thicken it and let the ingredients blend. This blows away any store sauce. Read More

The BEST Cocktail sauce i have ever tasted. It is a little on the runny side but the taste far out ways that. Was unsure about the Tequila but you cant even taste it. Just mix it and put it in the frig for a few hours and it does thicken a bit. Read More

Wonderfully amazing taste I did not have chili sauce so I used a recipe from this site I also reduced the servings because I was not feeding 50. We loved it. I made it a second time filled empty 1/2 pint jars that I had and gave them away as refrigerated Christmas gifts. This is now the requested sauce for all occasions. Make sure you have a good potent horseradish as this can do a lot for the taste. Read More

Very good - not too different from your standard cocktail sauce. Tiquila does give it a bit of a kick - nice. Observation - made it for 12 servings - 1/2 of that would have served up for 12 people. Read More
