Cocktail sauce is a mixture of catsup, apple cider vinegar, horseradish, fresh lemon juice, pepper, and Tabasco sauce or Floyd’s sauce and Worchester sauce. You could also use tomato puree and fresh horseradish root for a thicker, southern style cocktail sauce.
- 2 cups catsup
- ½ cup horseradish
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (or lime juice)
- Ground pepper
- Tabasco or
- Floyd’s sauce and
- Worchester sauce
I usually make mine in larger quantities and blend it in a food processor. By the way, I find most cocktail sauces are pretty wimpy, not having near enough horseradish. People then drown their oysters in this wimpy catsup.
Freshly prepared cocktail sauce has a brighter taste then cocktail sauce from a jar and it is really easy to make.
