There have been many partners in crime throughout time. I think of the great ones like chocolate chips and cookies, or Bonnie and Clyde, or bacon wrapped hot dogs, or Tom and Jerry, and find it important not to over look the precious pair known as “Sangrita Completo.” For those of you that are not familiar with sangrita, it is a beautiful spicy tart slightly sweet chaser/accompaniment served with a shot of tequila, when you serve the two together they are called “completo.” You have the option of either sipping them side by side or going for the gusto and shooting the hard stuff back first, then following it with a delicious sangrita.
In celebration of National Tequila Day (July 24th), I decided to prepare a batch of Tequila’s best friend Sangrita. Since it is a special day I added the smokey kick of Tabasco’s Chipotle Hot Sauce to the sangrita, and rimmed the shot glass with Tabasco’s spicy salt. These two additions made for the most wonderful flavor, and really made the pair COMPLETO!
I hope you enjoy this gorgeous sangrita this National Tequila Day or make it any time your tequila needs a friend.
