Are you as excited as we are about summer? Yes, after a long winter and somewhat strange spring, we are ready for the arrival of summer. We will all finally be able to sleep in and there are a lot of family gatherings to look forward to. We're Mexican, so you know that family gatherings are all about the food & drink and living a moment to the fullest with your entire family around you. 

I am not a big meat eater like the rest of the family, so I always like to bring a dish to family gatherings that is lighter yet flavorful. These are my favorite Shrimp Cocktail Shooters and they are so easy to make! I will be pairing these with cold bottles of Corona Extra.

Shrimp Cocktail Shooters 


1 pound cooked shrimp
1/2 cup tomato juice
1-2 chopped chile serrano
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2  cup chopped tomato
1/2 chopped cucumber
salt & pepper to taste
1 lime / juice

2-3 chopped avocados


In a large bowl pour all of your ingredients together, minus the avocado and mix. Refrigerate until just prior to serving, I like to do this for at least 30 minutes to let all the flavors mesh together. Now just prepare each little cup with a few spoonfuls of the mix, a healthy dose of avocado and 1 shrimp.  


What I love about these Shrimp Cocktail Shooters is that they are not just incredibly easy to make. These smaller servings are perfect for family gatherings because with so much food to eat, it's hard to enjoy all of it. In these small cups, everyone can enjoy a few and move on to the next dish. It's more of a sampling of shrimp cocktail, but one they will definitely enjoy.

This shrimp cocktail really is spicy so make sure to have a Corona Extra ready and waiting.

Life is good, it really is, even with as tumultuous as the world happens to be at the moment, you always have to look at the good things in your life. We have our family, we have our health and we have "la chamba" to keep us going. And if we work really hard during the week we can look forward to those weekends when we can relax and enjoy everything we work so hard for.

With Spotify playing in the background, a Shrimp Cocktail Shooter in my hand and a cold Corona Extra waiting for me, I must say that life is def good. Cheers.
