Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.

Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.

Party Philosoph-

Who doesn’t love a good party?  We love to entertain.  Any excuse to get the gang together is a great reason for a party.  We do lots of easy poolside BBQs + lunches, snack, and cocktails on the boat.  I spent years throwing parties that we great for guests but I never left the kitchen.  Now I’ve learned to make entertaining spree-free and fun for me and my guests.  I’ll share what I’ve learned and hope it will make it easier for you to throw awesome parties – that get you out of the kitchen and into the party.

Let’s get this party started!
