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!

Check out The Food Channel's extended recipe list in honor of September 16, 2010, the bicentennial of Mexico’s Independence Day and November 20, the centennial of the Mexican Revolution.
