This Prawn cocktail served family style on a chopping board in big lettuce cups was such a hit!  So much easier and more fun than a classic prawn cocktail.  My twisted Bloody Mary inspired cocktail sauce using Mezcal (the Godfather of tequila)… specifically @mezcalzunte @mezcalzunteapac gives this one an extra smokey hit.  I had some Bloody Mary salt gifted from @bloody_drinks which gave the cocktail sauce the perfect seasoning too but celery salt and black pepper are a great substitute!
