Bloody Mary Oyster Shooters

Bloody Mary Oyster Shooters are terrific at cocktail parties, or as a pre-dinner aperitif and appetizer all in one!

Makes: 24 shooters
Preparation time: 5-10 minutes


150 ml (5 fl oz) vodka or gin
1 tablespoon (1 fl oz) Worcestershire sauce
10 drops Tabasco, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
generous salt and freshly ground pepper
1 litre (2 pints) tomato juice
2 dozen oysters


  1. Combine vodka, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, lemon juice, salt, pepper and tomato juice and shake with a dozen ice cubes.
  2. Drain and pour into shot glasses.
  3. Drop an oyster in each and serve immediately.

Lyndey’s Note: Oysters can be bought on the shell, or inexpensively in jars. You can substitute sherry or port glasses for shot glasses.

Wine: No match here, just drink more shooters!
