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.

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.
