I use fresh oysters they are a pain to shuck but the fresh juice is unbeatable. What better way for an oyster lover to enjoy an oyster. So good. Read More

Being from the Great Nation of Texas I made a few revisoins. "Tito's" hand made Texas Vodka, Texas fresh Gulf Coast Oysters, 4 oz Louisiana Cocktail Sauce mixed with 1 Tbs. Horseradish and 4 oz. of "Calamato" Juice mixed. Fill a 3 oz. Solo Drinking cup with 1 1/2 oz. "Tito's" Vodka and fill cup to 3/4 full with Cocktail/Calamato Mix. Chill in the freezer. Remove and squeeze the juice of a 'Valley Lemon" on top with fresh ground pepper and a few dahses of "Frank's Red Hot Original". Shoot it down and enjoy. I call it "The Borracho Trail Third Coast Oyster Shooter" and that is how you add the last half of the remaing star to make it a 5 Star recipe. Read More

I made the mistake of using canned oysters with this...much too mushy. Next time we'll use fresh shucked ones. My husband doesn't like Bloody Marys (not a tomato juice person) and HE even liked them! Read More

Great recipe! You have to love Oysters and I do. They can be very meaty and the taste is worth the try. Use only fresh Oysters from a Seafood Market and have them shuck the oysters for you. This way you avoid the horror stories. Use a shot tube they are nice and thin to place the oysters. Garnish with lemon and a thin slice of celery makes a beautiful shot tube! Your guests will want to try them. Read More

I have never had raw oysters before & now I know why...those suckers are nasty! I enjoyed the tomato mixture a lot but it would have been even better w/out the sliminess of the oyster. I'm giving four stars because I don't think it's fair to rate an oyster recipe low just because I have an aversion to raw oysters. I'll stick to Bloody Mary's from now on....sorry. Read More
