    This is our go to cocktail sauce. Quick, yummy, & easily adaptable. I add 3/4 tsp pepper or a few dashes hot sauce and extra horseradish.

    Need to add 1/2 teaspoon of tobasco sauce, more horseradish and 1 to 2 teaspoons of Old Bay.

    Well, I'll never buy cocktail sauce again! Not when something this good can be made with things I keep in my fridge and on my pantry shelves! I do want to try some of the variations that other reviewers have posted, and will, but FIRST time out, I follow a recipe as written! This is a keeper!

    My recipe is almost identical to this recipe, but I also add about 2tsp of soy sauce. The soy sauce adda another flavor that goes well with shrimp.

    This is very good. Almost like my own recipe. I usually add onion and garlic powder with a touch of salt. And if I want it zippier I add scirachi sauce.

    Good, but I use Chili Sauce and makes it so much tastier!

    similar to my recipe but for the festive season I add Heinz salad cream instead of mayonnaise (Cant stand that stuff)and a couple of chopped Jalapeno chilli's along with a shot of good brandy to pimp it up a little. Never fails me and everyone loves it.

    It is the perfect sauce. I use the same recipe, except I use lime juice. Excellent!

    Very similar to my go-to cocktail sauce. I use Heinz Chili Sauce vs Ketchup, lime juice (fresh) vs lemon, and add a couple tablespoons of honey. I'm a little heavier handed with the horseradish too.

    Fabulous! I'm always disappointed in store-bought sauces, and this is exactly the taste I was looking for. Absolutely my go-to recipe -- I've made it many, many times. Quick and easy to whip up, too, and nice to be able to adjust the level of horseradish to taste.
