You can prepare this simple recipe for your family on a warm sunny day. Keep the cocktail refrigerated until ready to serve. I serve it in a bowl set over crushed ice, which keeps it cold and safe at the same time. Cocktails are regularly sold at the beach, and in the islands fishermen come by in canoes to offer the best of cocktails. It is very important that the shrimp be fresh and not precooked, because this way the lime juice cooks it through and flavors are really absorbed by them.
