The shrimp cocktail dates from the 1890s. A combination of oysters (wildly popular at the time) and a tomato-based sauce (spiced up with horseradish, Tabasco and cayenne) was served in tiny cups. In the 1920s, these shrimp appetizers were served in cocktail glasses, originally meant to hold alcoholic beverages – an innovative way to use this stemware during Prohibition.
