Shrimp With Spicy Bloody Mary Sauce

“This is no ordinary shrimp dip. the sauce is a zesty blend of diced tomatoes, worcestershire sauce, paprika and garlic, spiked with a touch of vodka. This recipe was created with the popular Bloody Mary drink in mind. Taking the ingredients I like in the drink, adding some consistency to the blend with the canned diced tomatoes and bottled chili sauce. Although the seasoning and tapatio lend a bit of heat, it doesn't overpower the other flavors. Serve in mini martini shot glasses gives your guests a personal and unique appetizer. Great for entertaining Shrimp and sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cook time does not include chill time.”
