How to Make Sangrita

How to Cocktail: Sangrita

Sangrita is the classic accompaniment to tequila shots in Mexico. In this short video, tequila expert and Liquor.com advisory board member Jacques Bezuidenhout introduces you to the deliciously spicy citrus-and-tomato concoction.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oz Tabasco Sauce or Cholula Hot Sauce
  • 2 oz Lime juice
  • 6 to 8 oz Orange juice
  • 6 to 8 oz Grapefruit juice
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 15 oz Tomato juice
  • 1 Jalapeño pepper, halved (with seeds)

PREPARATION:
Add all the ingredients to a pitcher and stir until the salt dissolves. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes and then remove and discard the jalapeño. (The longer the jalapeño infuses, the spicier the Sangrita will be.) Store in the refrigerator. Serve as an accompaniment to shots of tequila.

    Why would you cut the fruit into quarters and then squeeze with your hands? Seems to me that in addition to how long it takes, you are going to leave a lot of juice behind.
