A little sangrita is good for the soul

Didn’t realize this was a traditional thing.  I randomly ordered one of these at Frontera Grill in Chicago a few years ago and daydream about it to this day. I made the mistake of shooting the tequila and using the sangrita as a chaser.  Next time I order one, I’ll try the alternating sips, I think I’d get more out of it that way.

Seamus, I guarantee you that will be the case. The old U.S. tradition of “slamming” tequila shots has given this fine spirit a decidedly second-class, even third-class, status in the eyes of too many people.
