Ceviche Cocktail 1980 Style

My friend, and mentor in my early days, 80’s Super Star Chef: Jackie:) This guy was battling dementia, but could cook anything you’d ever want from memory. He taught me the basics of cooking, from one line cook to another. He first made this dish when our air-conditioner broke during a hot summer in this old kitchen! They were fresh, easy and soooo amazing!


  1. 4 cups Clamato (cold)
  2. 1/2 cup fine dice sweet onion
  3. 1 large avacado cubed
  4. 1 cucumber cubed
  5. 2 cups peeled, ready to eat, diced shrimp
  6. 1/2 cup fine dice cilantro
  7. 1 Lemon/Lime (squeezed)
  8. to taste Salt/Pepper
  9. 1/4 cup green onion diced
  10. 1 tablespoon fine dice jalapeño


  1. Combine all ingredients into a glass, or plastic container, mix well and enjoy! Super easy recipe, you can add or retract whatever ingredients you want for a customized fresh cocktail treat!

  2. Add or subtract Clamato per desired “soupiness.” Also, add and subtract any ingredient per desired flavors. If you know how to cook small scallops, add them, they only enhance the dish.
