My inspiration for these Oyster Shooters came from Pearlz Oyster Bar and Dixie Vodka’s Black Pepper Vodka. What can be better in the summertime., or all year-round for that matter, than a taste of the sea and vodka? Local to Charlotte? Contact the Carolina Meat & Fish Co. for your oysters and suggestions as to what kind will work best for this recipe.
Rub the opening of the shot glasses with lemon. Dip the rim of the glasses in Old Bay Seasoning to coat the outer edge. Place shucked oysters in shot glasses (use plastic if you are going poolside). Pour 1 oz. of Black Pepper Vodka into each glass.
Mix cocktail sauce, horseradish and hot sauce to taste in a bowl. Spice level can be adjusted up or down depending on your taste. Spoon about one ounce of the cocktail sauce mixture into each shot glass shot. Serve the Oyster Shooters with a garnish of sliced lemon. I like to make these ahead of time and chill in the refrigerator. ENJOY!
