Make the iconic poached shrimp appetizer or recreate it as a frosty gin cocktail.

Which cocktail glass are you most tempted to pick up? Dip or sip?

The classic
Michael Lomonaco, chef/owner of Porter House New York restaurant in New York City, is known for his contemporary American cuisine. Shrimp cocktail, a steakhouse classic, is a popular appetizer at his restaurant, and a dish he’s served for years. His recipe features enormous chilled poached shrimp and a tangy cocktail sauce with fresh horseradish and hot pepper sauce.

The update
Gina Chersevani, the award-winning mixologist of PS 7’s restaurant in Washington, DC, loves to push the envelope with her innovative, sophisticated cocktails. Here, she reinvents the classic appetizer as a “shrimp cocktail” cocktail, with spicy pickled shrimp, cherry tomatoes, and fresh lemon.
