oyster shooter anyone?

my sister is hosting a party for charlestons
design walk on king street...

she came up with this adorable idea
of serving oyster shooters...

  • 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.

  • i think this is such an adorable idea
  • and lexie has decided to add a celery
  • stick to assist getting the oyster
  • out of the glass...

even a pickled green bean would be good...
