Don’t have Sriracha sitting around, but there’s a bottle of Tabasco at the back of your cabinet? Check out our other cocktail sauce recipe that features Sriracha’s equally popular competitor. It’s a different taste as Tabasco is more vinegary than the fuller-bodied Sriracha.

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Pinch salt and pepper to taste


  • Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir to combine. 
  • Serve immediately, or for best flavor, chill the Sriracha cocktail sauce for 1 to 2 hours prior to serving to allow the flavors to meld.


Feel free to experiment with more Sriracha for a spicier flavor. If you double the amount of Sriracha consider cutting the garlic clove from the recipe. Sriracha is a chili garlic sauce, so there is already a garlic undertone to the sauce. The additional amount of hot sauce is often just enough extra garlic flavor.
