This version of an old standard has a contemporary twist. Fresh avocado in crunchy, spicy sauce makes a cocktail sure to be a taste pleaser for those in search of flavor.


Serves: 6

2 Tbsp. thick, chunky tomato salsa
2 Tbsp. seafood cocktail sauce
2 Tbsp. chopped onion
2 Tbsp. diced seedless cucumber
1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
1 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
2 California Avocados (1 pound), diced
30 large (21 to 25 count per pound), cooked shrimp with tails
6 lime slices for garnish
6 sprigs cilantro for garnish

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.

  1. Thoroughly combine salsa and next 5 ingredients; gently fold in avocado.
  2. Chill mixture 1 hour to marry flavors. (Mixture is best served the day it's made.)
  3. To serve, divide avocado mixture among 6 stemmed glasses.
  4. Hang 5 shrimp, tails outside glass, around each rim.
  5. Garnish each with 1 twisted lime slice and 1 sprig cilantro.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
