Have you ever heard of sangrita? It is, apparently, an authentic Mexican mixed-drink mixer + tequila chaser. One that I’ve never heard of….. so, naturally, I couldn’t wait to try to make it!
We Googled this mysterious mixer and the results looked much more appetizing than “clam juice + tomato juice” (yep, that is what’s in clamato — clam + tomato….get it?). As it turned out, Sangrita is a traditional tequila chaser but can also be used in a bloody mary/maria, and in a michelada.
This happened to be one of the best micheladas Donald ever had, so of course I needed to give it a try. After all, Donald’s exquisite pallet doesn’t lie.
It seems any traditional or decidedly “classic” sangrita recipes have been muddied by years of adaptation. After sifting through lots of blogs and recipe sites, the consensus on the tastiest recipe (to the American pallet) seems to be this one. Simple and refreshing.
