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

For Bloody Marys
