On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a delicious treat straight from the sea!

It’s oyster season in the South Carolina Lowcountry. When months containing an ‘R’ (November, December, January, February, March and April) roll around, oyster roasts are suddenly as popular as barbecues. Oyster shooters are a real treat — especially at Christmas parties and holiday gatherings. The spicier, the better! Merry Christmas!

Oyster Shooters
You can certainly use tomato or vegetable juice for these yummy shooters. We like Zing Zang!
8 raw oysters

Bloody Mary mix
Lemon wedges
Line up 8 double shot glasses. Place one raw oyster in each glass. Cover with bloody Mary mix and top with a splash of vodka. Squeeze lemon over the top. Serves 8.

If you enjoyed this recipe, please come back tomorrow — and every day through December 25th. I’ll be posting NEW Christmas recipes each day. Merry Christmas!
