Eric's Sangrita Recipes (3)

Sangrita is the traditional chaser served in Mexico with a shot of Tequila. « back

Sangrita is the traditional chaser served in Mexico with a shot of Tequila.  Sangrita is a lighter, fresher, and spicier alternative to a Bloody Mary.  There is nothing better than smooth, Tres Agaves Tequila served neat, with a side chaser whose alchemy of tomato, fresh citrus, and chile compliments the spirit perfectly.

Serve your freshly-made Sangrita with a shot of Tres Agaves Blanco or Reposado Tequila and a Mexican cerveza such as Victoria, Modelo, or Pacifico.

A nice presentation is on a small wooden tray with seasoned and regular salt plus lime wedges.  If you want to add a tasty food component then also serve the traditional Mexican appetizer of sliced cucumbers with lime, salt, and chile de arbol.  

Now you’re ready for a big ¡Saludos! to get any party started!
