■  1 oz tomato juice
■  ½ oz fresh lime juice
■  ½ oz fresh grapefruit juice
■  ¹⁄8 tsp chili powder

“Sangrita, which means ‘little blood’ [is a category of nonalcoholic chaser that] was created to accompany a shot of tequila,” explains owner Ralph Battista. “We’ve combined the two to make a delicious apéritif that cleanses the palate with each peppery sip—it’s the perfect way to prepare your taste buds for a Mexican meal.”
