One of the first things that Marcela and I connected over was our love for Mexican culture. We created an event, El Main Evento, to celebrate everything from mariachis, tacos and pan de muerto.
When I received an email about a Dia de los Muertos-inspired recipe, it didn’t take much convincing to post it here on my blog. The cocktail was created at Paramour, a rooftop bar located in San Antonio, Texas.
The recipe for the Mexican Vampiro “is an homage to tradition with a modern Paramour twist, perfectly marrying Viuda de Sanchez Sangrita, tequila, lime juice, and grapefruit soda.“
The Mexican Vampiro Cocktail Recipe
- 1 1/2 oz viuda de sangrita
- 2 oz tequila
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- Grapefruit soda
- Slice of lime
- Rim skull-shaped glass with tajin.
- Combine Viuda de Sanchez Sangrita, tequila, and lime juice in a mixing glass; add ice and shake.
- Pour into the skull-shaped glass while straining.
- Add ice and top with grapefruit soda and a slice of lime.
- Drink up!
We’ll be toasting with our Mexican Vampiro-filled skull glasses to the memories of the friends and family we’ve lost on Dia de los Muertos.
