As with most sauces, it takes a couple days for the flavors to fully mix and develop.  On the first evening the sauce was a bit thin and the flavors were light and fresh.  After sitting in the refrigerator for a few days the sauce thickened and the bite of the horseradish and vinegar developed into the cocktail sauce one expects.
