Bloody Maria Sangrita Recipe
Try a Mexican twist on the brunch fav Bloody Mary with this Bloody Maria Sangrita Recipe. Tequila with spicy tomato and citrus juices. Yum.
Traditionally, Sangrita (“little blood”) is served as a companion for a high-quality 100% agave tequila. And each is sipped alternately, not as a chaser to a shot.
Early versions of sangrita would not have included tomato juice, it would have been made with the reserved juice from making a traditional Mexican fruit salad. It would have been the juices from lime, grapefruit, orange juice, cucumber, tangerine, pomegranate, and/or mango mixed with finely ground spicy chili powder.
Later, it is believed in Mexico City they began adding tomato juice.
To make this a brunch-friendly drink I combine the tequila with the juice mixture for an easy to serve and delicious beverage.
Traditional (non-tomato based) Sangrita is used in a drink known as “The Mexican Flag” — three separate double shot glasses are filled with lime juice, tequila, and sangrita, and sipped alternately.
Bloody Maria Sangrita Cocktail
A traditional Sangrita is a little side of tomato and citrus juices combined with spicy peppers and served as a sidecar for a excellent quality Tequila.
To make this a little more brunch-friendly, make a pitcher and add the tequila to the spicy mixture. Serve super cold with or without ice.
Garnish with a lime wedge and top each drink with a thin slice of fresh jalapeño.
- 2 cups chilled tomato juice very cold
- 2 c Tequila good quality
- 3/4 c chilled grapefruit juice fresh, if possible
- 3/4 c chilled orange juice fresh, if possible
- 1/4 c chilled lime juice
- 1 t sea salt fine ground
- 2 t Tabasco to taste
- 1 jalapeño halved with seeds
- 6 lime wedges
- 1 jalapeño cut into coins, seed if desired
For Bloody Marys
Add all ingredients into a large pitcher and stir until well blended and salt has dissolved.
Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes to infuse the mixture with the jalapeño halves. Discard jalapeño halves. Infuse longer for a spicier drink.
Pour into 6 ice-filled beverage glasses or without ice into highball or juice glasses.
Keep mixture very cold.
Serve with Huevos Rancheros Casserole.
