Don’t confuse sangrita with the Spanish-style wine punch sangria—it’s completely different. All sangrita recipes—and there are many—include fresh citrus juice (lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit, alone or in combination) balanced with a hint of hot sauce, salt, and acidity in the form of tomato juice or tomatillo. Think of a drinkable salsa.

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces tomato juice
  • 3 ounces fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice, or a combination
  • Pinch kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican hot sauce such as Tapatio

    Method

    Stir together all the ingredients and serve in shot glasses at room temperature with no ice.
