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!

    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!

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

          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.

            Frozen ice rings are the easiest and pretty.
