Campechana (Spicy Shrimp Cocktail)

Originating in Campeche, Mexico, this shrimp cocktail is gonna change your life! I had my first version of this yumminess at a legendary Mexican restaurant in San Antonio. All you need is your fav Bloody Mary mix, salsa, cubed avocado & cucumber, chopped cilantro, cooked shrimp & lime. Enjoy!
