You know you are having fun when these are the most delicious delights of the evening:
Oyster Shooters - Down The Hatch!
During the holidays, New Years Eve in particular, Oyster Shooters are a great appetizer, as well as conversation food. Making Oyster Shooters is fairly simple, just be careful when shucking the oyster. After a couple of bandages, you may consider purchasing shucked oysters. Something I learned after trying to be hip, with many bandages-mind you.
How you do it:
Place one oyster in shot glass
Add Worchester sauce and cocktail sauce if preferred
Add a couple of drops of hot sauce if preferred
Add beer to about two-thirds of the glass
Add lemon wedge on rim
Cover with hand and gently slam on the counter
