This bright red Mexican-style cocktail has a spicy kick to it. To celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day bicentennial (September 16) consider serving it alongside a shot of tequila and lime juice to mirror the colors of the Mexican flag (as shown here).
Why try? Sangrita is a traditional Mexican aperitif, usually served chilled with a shot of tequila. A celebration of the Mexican bicentennial would be the perfect time to observe this tradition.
Foodie Byte: You can purchase bottled sangrita at many wine and spirits stores and Latino markets, but we believe it’s definitely better when you make it fresh!
