Sangrita is a non-alcoholic drink popular in Mexico. It is usually made from a combination of fresh tomato juice, orange juice, lime juice, and chili peppers, and is served either as a shot or on the rocks.
Sangrita has its origins in the state of Jalisco, where it was first created in the 1940s. The original recipe is said to have come from a restaurant called La Cueva del Chango, which is now closed. The name of the drink comes from the Spanish word for blood, which is fitting given the red color of the drink.
Over the years, the recipe for Sangrita has evolved and changed, with different regions of Mexico putting their own twist on the drink. In some parts of the country, Sangrita is made with grapefruit juice instead of orange juice, while others add in additional ingredients like Worcestershire sauce or even beer.
