Make These Tomato Oyster Shooters For Brunch This Weekend

Loaded with iron and omega-3 fatty acids, these shooters are good for you!

These are more fun than Bloody Marys and perfect to serve at a post-run brunch. Oysters not only replenish protein but are loaded with iron, which aids in transporting oxygen to blood, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for lubricating your joints. You’ll need a dozen small glasses (ideally shot glasses), and if you are using a regular tomato vegetable juice, add a few drops of Tabasco or hot sauce.

Spicy Tomato Oyster Shooters
Serves 1 dozen

1½ cups Knudsen “spicy” tomato-vegetable juice, chilled
1½ tsp. prepared horseradish
4 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Salt and fresh pepper, to taste
12 shucked super-fresh oysters
Vodka, tequila or mescal, chilled

In a medium bowl, combine tomato juice, horseradish, lemon juice, cilantro, salt and pepper, and stir. Set aside, or chill until ready to serve. Place 1 oyster in each shooter glass. Add ½ teaspoon liquor and top with about 1½ tablespoons of the tomato mix to nearly fill a shot glass.

Hold the Hooch: Follow the recipe and simply omit the liquor.
