10 ounces sangrita

Every now and then there comes a time when someone suggests doing a tequila shot at brunch. We commend that one person for their bravery. While the classic chaser for a tequila shot may be lime juice, we’d like to recommend sangrita instead. Sangrita is a bright mixture of classic breakfast juices (orange and tomato) with a bit of lime and a kick from hot sauce. Doesn’t that sound better than just sucking on a lime wedge?

If you’re not into straight tequila during the daytime, toss that shot (or even a shot of vodka instead) into a larger portion of sangrita over ice for a crisp mixed drink. The best part about sangrita? It’s completely nonalcoholic. So whether you’re drinking it as a chaser or a mocktail, it won’t disappoint.

How to Make It

Step 1

Peel the cucumber in strips (or leave the peel on). Slice the rounded ends off the cucumbers and cut the remaining cucumber into 3-inch long pieces. Use a melon baller or a small spoon to scoop out most of the seeds, stopping about ½ inch from the bottom. Repeat with remaining cucumbers.

Step 2

In a glass measuring cup, mix together orange juice, tomato juice, lime juice, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Taste, and add more salt, pepper, or lime juice to taste.

Step 3

Pour juice mixture into half of the cucumber shot glasses.

Step 4

Fill the other half of the cucumber shot glasses with tequila.

Step 5

Take a shot of tequila, then chase with sangrita.
