Fresh Shrimp Served on Ice

I usually always have shrimp in my freezer making this an easy and quick appetizer to serve for parties. Make this cocktail sauce recipe with catsup, horseradish, sugar, salt, lemon juice, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and garlic early in the day for the sauce to develop flavors.
