This recipe calls for a small amount of alcohol, so it's really more of a fun canapé than a beverage. If you want to make a nonalcoholic version, omit the vodka and add an extra 1/4 cup veggie juice and a bit more lemon juice.

10 servings (serving size: 1 shooter)


+ Add To Shopping List
10 live oysters in shell
1 cup vegetable juice (such as V-8)
3 tablespoons vodka
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)


1. Scrub oysters thoroughly, and rinse under cold running water until all grit is removed. Shuck oysters (leaving the meat on the half shells); carefully cut the foot of each oyster with the shucking knife.

2. Combine vegetable juice and next 5 ingredients (through salt) in a liquid measuring cup. Stir in hot sauce, if desired. Fill each of 10 shot glasses with 2 1/2 tablespoons juice mixture. Place the meat from one oyster in each glass. Discard shells.
