  • About

In spite of some mumblings about Hemingway and Cuba being the source of the Bloody Mary, many sources agree that the drink is suspiciously similar to sangrita, a spicy, tomato-based concoction that is traditionally served alongside straight tequila shots. If you’re a Mary drinker, you’ll like this tequila variation.


  • Lime wedge
  • Lucas spice* or dry pico de gallo spice
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 ounces sangrita
  • ounces 100 percent agave blanco tequila


    Run the lime around the rim of a 12-ounce glass and dip the glass into the spice. Fill with ice cubes. Pour sangrita over the ice and pour the tequila on top. Garnish with a stick of jicama or cucumber.
