This is a cocktail sauce I've been making for over 20 years. Hope you enjoy. Use a kitchen funnel to pour the sauce back into the ketchup bottle -- it will last a long time.

I made this as directed (except for scaling the recipe to 6 servings) and while good it didn't taste any different than anything you'd get out of a bottle. It just didn't 'Wow' me. I prepared it and tasted it then allowed it to sit in the 'fridge for the flavors to meld. After re-tasting I added more horseradish and a wee bit of pepper. It was better but still not as great as I expected. Read More

I tried several other recipes and this one is the best and easiest! Normally I try a recipe then tweak it to what it needs or doesn't but this one needed no changes. The only thing I do different is use fresh lemon juice and put a bit more horseradish which is purely because of the unavailability of bottled concentrate and my own taste for horseradish. Kudos to Craig! Read More

I have made this cocktail sauce several times and it is absolutly delicious. Not only do we use it for seafood but my children love to dip fresh vegitables in it. Once you've had this sauce you'll never use any other cocktail sauce again. Read More

Awesome! It wasn't until 20 minutes before dinner I grabbed the bottle of cocktail sauce out of the fridge and saw there was only a couple of tablespoons in the bottle. I jumped online saw this recipe saw that I had all of the ingredients (although my bottled lemon juice was expired!). I mixed it all up anyway. Wasn't sure what constitutes Hot Pepper Sauce so I used Crystal Hot Sauce. It was so good I didn't want to mix it with the store bought stuff. I recalculated the recipe for 2 servings which made about 1/2 of a standard bottle. Read More
