Boozy Barenjager Marinated Shrimp Cocktail – Virtual Potluck Holiday Party

Today we are celebrating our Virtual Potluck Holiday Party!  Everyone is bringing some sort of deliciousness to the table.  There is a stipulation….it must contain Barenjager Honey Liqueur!  How fun is that?

The fine folks at Barenjager graciously sent us all a bottle of the Honey Liqueur (Thank you!) I thought it would be fun to make a savory & sweet appetizer with it.  I’m sure there will be several cocktails and you need to have a little sumpin sumpin in the tum or the party will get out of hand in a flash.

This shrimp cocktail is quick to make, super chic and it tastes amazing.  Like really amazing.  Give it a shot for your New Years Eve party.  If you don’t want to serve them in individual glasses, they would be just as gorgeous skewered on a platter with the super easy boozy cocktail sauce in the center.

Here’s to a Happy New Year! Don’t forget to check out the other Virtual Potluck Recipes by heading to Food Hunters Guide for the complete list of deliciousness.
