While in Mexico this past winter I was introduced to Sangrita ("little blood ), a spicy, non-alcoholic Mexican drink served as a chaser (co-sip) with tequila. The traditional method is to alternate sips of tequila with sangrita, but it is sometimes mixed with the tequila and served in a single glass. A tequila-and-sangrita serving is called a 'completo'. There are several recipes on RZ for Sangrita, but this is the way I was taught to make it. This is one of those concoctions that you mix to your taste, so add the spices a little at a time.") Serve over ice.
