“Vuelve a La Vida” literally means “come back to life”, and it is the name of a seafood cocktail that will make you do just that! Oysters, crab pulp, octopus, and shrimp are some of the ingredients used in this cocktail, which you can easily prepare at home for your guests.
* To cook octopus or squid, place it into boiling water with a little bit salt and pepper and one bay leaf. Cook until the octopus or calamari is tender. Octopus will take longer to cook.
** If you do not want to make the shrimp broth, or only have unpeeled shrimp, use the orange soda. You will need to add this in step two of the recipe.
*** Some cooks use tomato juice from the “Clamato” brand instead of ketchup, or use a combination of the two.
