How to Make Cocktail Sauce

When you're ready to boil up some peel and eat shrimp, the last thing you want is to discover you're low on cocktail sauce. This simple cheat will make great sauce in seconds and save you money too.

Money Saving Tip: Just pick up store brand ketchup and a little horseradish on sale and your homemade cocktail sauce will be a big hit for half of what you'd pay for it at the grocery. (Inexpensive ketchup is also a tasty base for sloppy Joes made with your own spice blend.)

Homemade Cocktail Sauce Recipe

1 cup Ketchup (Don't waste the premium brand on this. Store brands are fine.)
1/3 cup Horseradish (1/2 cup if you like it spicy)
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. Lemon juice

Combine all ingredients and let incorporate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.

Special Note: For some zing, add a quarter teaspoon of dried dill or a half-teaspoon fresh dill (or to taste).
