What's your favorite way to present shrimp cocktail?

Hi everyone, I'll be having a party at which I'd like to serve shrimp cocktail. Can you give me your favorite ways to present it? It'll be for a group of about 40 and I won't have time to use individual cups, so platter or bowl-type presentations would be best. Thanks!

  1. Frozen ice rings are the easiest and pretty.

    1. It is kind of hard to make it pretty if you don't have time.

      If you have time, you could make a shrimp tree:

      You can also use a pineapple for the base of the shrimp tree.

      1. Mexican style. Served in a goblet with a sauce made from tomatoe juice, chopped jalapenos, avacado, etc...

          1. Thanks everyone! I think I'll go with the punch bowl idea from the link that Lala posted. I did a search before posting but didn't find that thread so thanks for digging it up!
