Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple puts a spin on traditional cocktail sauce, making it with tangy green tomatillos and cilantro, then bumping up the horseradish heat by including a dose of spicy green bottled hot sauce. It’s refreshing and spicy, and supremely tasty with shrimp and oysters. Slideshow: More Cocktail Sauce Recipes
