The vampira is tall, spicy, tart, and refreshing. It’s essentially a revved-up version of the margarita with the barest touch of Clamato and spicy edge, and just as brunch-friendly as the Bloody Maria. This excellent version of the cocktail is served at Restaurante Romesco in San Diego, where it is made with a high-end tequila and a dash of Clamato.
