Note from Red Sox Nation
Drinking red martinis and snacking on perfect rosy cold-cooked shrimp dipped in spicy red cocktail sauce while we root for our team. Hell, it's all tied up at the end of three … time for another red martini for me and the drunk guy sitting next to me on the couch. As for the rest of you: Just wait until next year!
Update: Despite a late inning 2 run homer by Victor Martinez and what looked like a rally in the 9th, the Red Sox lost to the Blue Jays: 11-9. Oh well.
RED CANDIED APPLE MARTINI
2 fluid ounces pear vodka
2 fluid ounces sour apple schnapps (such as DeKuyper® Sour Apple Pucker)
2 fluid ounces cranberry juice
Pour the pear vodka, apple schnapps, and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker over ice. Cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into a chilled martini glass, garnish a slice of ripe pear and serve.
RED SEAFOOD DIPPING SAUCE
1 cup Ketchup
1 tablespoon horseradish
1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving, can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Especially good with cold cooked jumbo shrimp.
