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.


  • 2 oz Tabasco 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)

Glass: Shot

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