Tequila with Sangria Recipe

Sit down to any serious meal in Mexico and you’ll be offered twin glasses of sipping tequila and sangrita. The latter is a spicy “chaser” based on tomato and orange or lime juice, often with a little chili powder or pickled pepper juice for punch. The presentation might be rounded out with a few radishes, scallions or jicama slices to munch on.
