Grilled shrimp recipes: Tequila Grilled shrimp

Looking over grilled shrimp recipes for a barbecue or a cocktail party?  You might find just the thing in Tequila Grilled  Shrimp?

One of the points which James Peterson makes in Simply Shrimpis to remember that shrimp cooks very quickly.  This means that if you're hoping to get a smoky flavor from grilling, you're not going to get it from the cooking process.  He suggests using a home stove-top smoker as one alternative.

If you don't have tequila handy for this recipe, don't let that stop you, you could use another spirit like whisky, rum, pisco, cachaça or vodka and use the recipe of one of your favorite cocktails as the basis.
