The Sangrita Shot is really 2 shots: 1 tequila & 1 non-alcoholic chaser.

There are two very different versions of the Sangrita Shot recipe: the (original) Mexican Sangrita and the American Sangrita recipe.

The Mexican Sangrita features a spicy orange chaser. The American Sangrita features a spicy tomato chaser. Both are delicious!
