Maria’s Shrimp Cocktail

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Fans of the Bloody Maria will love this exotic twist on the savory cocktail, which is dosed with tangy calamansi juice, umami-packed fish sauce and a spicy salted rim. "This savory, vegetal and high-acid homage to the Bloody Mary was intended to pair with any of Maypop's complex Southeast Asian-inspired dishes,” say mixologists Phil Khanderish and Reza Esmali. “Or, when served with the local poached whole shrimp, it’s a meal on it's own."
