Spa Recipe: Mexican Shrimp Martini from the Waters of the World Cafe

The Spa at PGA National’s outdoor Waters of the World Cafe recently launched their new spa cuisine menu featuring light fare, smoothies, wrap sandwiches, cold soups and fresh salads. Chef Dan Handy from the Spa at PGA National’s Waters of the World Café has shared an appetizing and easy Mexican Shrimp Martini recipe to make at home. This healthy spa recipe is low in fat, filling, and is a zesty twist on the average refreshingly cold tomato-based soup, otherwise known as Gazpacho. It is the perfect starter for a hot day of relaxation by the Waters of the Worlds pools or makes a great meal at home served with a nicely warmed baguette.
