Shrimp Martini™

This is great for a summertime get-together or any time  I've used precooked shrimp which is just easier to use.

1 lb. precooked Shrimp
1 - 2 oz. tequila (2 - 4 T.)
1 avocado chopped
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper, dried parsley
1 lime zested and juiced

Pinch red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic chopped and crushed
Salt and pepper, enough to coat rim of glasses

Put shrimp in refrigerator to thaw into ready to use.

Put some salt, pepper, red pepper flakes on a clean small plate.

Wet 4 clean martini glasses with a clean wet napkin. 

Place glasses face down on plate with the salt, pepper and pepper flakes. Coat rim of glasses.

Place glasses in freezer until ready to use.

Peel and chop garlic, set aside.

Cut avocado in half, remove pit.

 Cut avocado into cubes, place into a small bowl.

Zest lime into the bowl with avocados.

Cut lime in half and squeeze some over avocados to keep from spoiling.

Juice rest of lime into a measuring cup.

Add tequila, salt, parsley, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, m
ix well.

Remove shrimp from refrigerator and place into a bowl. 

Pour tequila mixture over shrimp, toss to coat. 

Put shrimp in refrigerator to marinate until ready to serve 15 - 20 min.
