It doesn’t matter what brand you use I just poured it from the bottle into this cup and that’s how much there is an equal part of good quality ketchup We like Heinz organic. So that’s what we use the juice of one lemon about this size lemon So this is a large lemon when I bought them at the store, that’s what it said large lemon 2 teaspoons of plain Tabasco sauce you can use whatever hot sauce you like if you like sriracha or something else like Texas Pete go ahead and use that 1 tbsp of prepared horseradish and 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce That’s all there is and it’s so simple You’re really just gonna mix this all up together in the bowl goes our chili sauce our ketchup our lemon juice Tabasco Worcestershire and our horseradish everything goes in the bowl We give it a gentle stir because this is you’re mixing like a juice and a very viscous Material like the chili sauce in the ketchup. Now the chili sauce is gonna have a little Flavor added into it that got different Combination of spices and things I wanted to let you guys know that you can adjust the heat level here if you don’t like horseradish Just add a teaspoon, but don’t leave it out because it really it really does make a difference now my dad would really love it if I just mixed ketchup and Lemon juice and maybe some werster sure, but not a whole lot My dad would not does not enjoy it with the Tabasco or with the horseradish or any of that I Hate to say about my dad that even oatmeal is too spicy for him and he will admit that when you put too much cinnamon In it. It is too spicy for him so You totally need to adjust this to your own comfort zone If you like it a little more tart You can add a little more lemon juice but in the end cocktail sauce is supposed to be a very specific flavor This is how we enjoy ours.
