Gazpacho Shooters with 30 Rock Guac

GazpachoI suppose there are people who can pass up free guacamole, but they’re either allergic to avocado or too joyless to live…Frank Bruni

imageOf course I don’t love totally puréed gazpacho therefore one must use a spoon for my version of Curtis’ gazpacho still and all sip-able if Guac is stirred into the shot glass or edged with seafood seasoning and served with a couple of dunkable steamed spicy shrimp draped on the edge.  I have made many versions of gazpacho over the years and haven’t found one that I haven’t liked.  Consider a bit of tequila in glass…do consider Curtis’s recipe that I posted a few weeks ago (link below), refrigerate over night adding more fresh veggies or chosen additions and keep chilled until serving time.  Sit back relax, serve wth margaritas bowls of chips and dips…
