Vodka Oyster Shooter

Oyster Shooter
Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Simple, clean and classic, this vodka-based oyster shooter from Southern California’s Hungry Cat restaurant is an eye-opening start to a meal, night, vacation, Netflix session—anything, really. It’s essentially a deconstructed Bloody Caesar. Shuck open an oyster, dash on some hot sauce and chase it with a shot of chilled vodka and lemon juice.
