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.
