Inspired by the Mexican Caribbean coast, this prawn and octopus incorporates all the delicious seafood flavors of the coast. Featuring king prawns and freshly cooked octopus, this seafood cocktail is made with fresh orange and tomato juice, tequila, and just a splash of Tobasco sauce. Allow the cocktail mixture time to cool in the refrigerate before serving. This seafood cocktail is easily made in the morning to be served at night.
