A cocktail sauce with Southern bite…

It’s super simple to turn your homemade cocktail sauce up a notch – all it takes is a little Cajun seasoning and Tabasco hot sauce to bring that spicy Southern charm to life. It’s perfect with popcorn shrimp (or cocktail shrimp), fish sticks, or other dipping-ready seafood. If it’s not hot enough for you, try a┬ápinch of cayenne pepper to really light things up.
