Coctel de Camarones is how I get by means of the oppressive California summer season with sanity intact.

When days get too hot and sweaty, I lounge by the pool with a cocktail glass filled with this Mexican shrimp cocktail at the only hand and an icy chilly Corona at the other. Sometimes, for actual and most times, make-believe.

I used Clamato that's a commercial instruction made up of tomato juice, clam broth, and spices for the caldo (cocktail juice) but you possibly can replace broth from poaching the shrimp or clam juice and vegetable juice.

Along with the lime and vegetable juices, freshly-squeezed orange juice or orange-flavored soda can also be in many instances further for flavor.
