Vampiro Tequila Cocktail

Honest Cooking

This traditional Mexican drink incorporates a riff on the classic sangrita, but instead of the tequila and mix served side by side, it’s blended together and topped off with grapefruit soda.


1 1/2 parts Tres Agaves Tequila Reposado
5 parts Sangrita (see below)
1/2 parts Lime juice
Balance with grapefruit soda (squirt or Jarritos)
For the Sangrita
Juice of 1 orange
Juice of 4 limes
Juice of 2 grapefruits
Pinch of salt
A touch of ground black pepper
Hot sauce


  1. For the sangrita: Blend all sangrita ingredients.
  2. Build the drink in the glass by first putting the tequila in the glass, then add the sangrita mixture, and top off with grapefruit soda. Stir ingredients together in highball glass, and garnish with grapefruit wheel.
