Paramour’s The Mexican Vampiro Cocktail Recipe

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.
