Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe uses six ingredients that are used in the Rogue Spruce Gin, as well as the gin itself! Serve this appetizer “up” in a cocktail glass for a fun presentation. The cocktail sauce can be made in advance and then added to the shrimp and other ingredients. This dish is fantastic paired with Rogue Half-e-Weizen or with Eugene City Brewery’s Honey Orange Wheat Ale. If you can’t find either of these, a Belgian-style Wit beer makes a nice substitute.

Ingredients You'll Need

Cocktail Sauce:
1.5 Cups Ketchup
3 Each Tangerines, juiced
1 Pinch Grains of Paradise
½ tsp. Finely minced or pureed ginger
½ Each Lemon, juiced
½ tsp. Ground coriander
1 fl oz. Rogue Spruce Gin

Shrimp Cocktails:
2.5 lbs. Drained, cooked shrimp (rock shrimp or bay shrimp)
½ lb. Cucumbers, seeded and cut into small dice
2 oz Green Onions, chopped


For the sauce, combine all ingredients and mix well.

Fold the sauce into the shrimp, cucumbers, and green onions.

Divide into 8 servings.

Garnish with peels or zest from the tangerine, lemon, and cucumber
