cocktail sauce

This is how Europeans make cocktail sauce. This is known in Mexico as salsa rosa or pink sauce.

Cognac adds a unique and unmistakable flavor without any chance of inebriation.
I use Mezcalito instead of cognac, much cheaper but still a similar flavor.

This is very different from the ketchup with hot sauce that goes under this same name in the US of A.
