Bloody Mary Shrimp Shooters

Preparation 5 Cook Time 10 Serves 6     adjust servings

It's time to party! And this appetizer looks as good as it tastes. Savory Bloody Mary mix paired with butter-lime shrimp. A total must-try.


  • 6-9 ounces Bloody Mary mixer
  • 3-6 ounces tequila (to taste) (optional)
  • 12 large, raw, peeled shrimp (thawed)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh-ground pepper
  • pinch of cayenne
  • pinch of celery salt
  • 4 tablespoons Challenge Butter
  • juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 6 sprigs parsley


If using tequila, mix tequila and Bloody Mary mix together over ice in a cocktail shaker (if not using alcohol, simply shake mixer). Pour into six 3-ounce shot glasses. Set aside. Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel. Pepper generously, add a pinch of cayenne and celery salt. In a Good Cook skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to hot butter and cook until pink. Flip and cook the other side until cooked through. Remove from heat, drizzle with lime juice and zest. Allow to cool slightly, then skewer two shrimp each onto six 4" toothpicks or cocktail skewers. To serve, slide shrimp skewers into prepared shot glasses. Garnish with parsley. Serve warm or cold.
