This fresh and hot tequila partner was discovered at Esperanza and made a ritual as a great entertainer in hot weather. We sometimes call it Tox - Detox for its miraculous cleansing qualities. Don't skimp on the shot glasses - this is one tequila cocktail not to be mixed.
8 oz fresh pineapple juice
5 oz fresh grapefruit juice
2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 green serrano
4 (or more) fresh mint sprigs (remove stems)
4 (or more) cilantro sprigs
Salt (to taste)
Reposado Tequila (we like tres generations, antiguo, herradura)
Mix all (except tequila) in blender, chill
Serve as chaser (or precursor) to equal part reposado tequila - Repeat until satisfied.
DO NOT MIX tequila and sangrita - it will not work the same way - select a different cocktail if you don't want to do shots and chasers.
