The mistake of adding tomato juice caught on and a distinctly differentbut equally deliciousvariation on the drink had formed
Traditional Lake Chapala-style sangrita uses Seville oranges as its basea sour, tart and slightly bitter varietyusually combined with lime, pomegranate, chili powder and hot sauce. These ingredients come together to impart the signature color that gives the drink its name.
However, when non-locals saw the vibrant red concoction, many erroneously assumed it contained tomato juice, and used the ingredient in their own recreations back home. The trend caught on, and as a result, a distinctly differentand equally deliciousvariation on the drink formed. This alternate style uses a tomato juice as a base, along with a variety of citrus, savory and spicy flavors.

What is the difference between sangria and sangrita?
Bartender extraordinaire, Jos, was generously pouring our afternoon tequila shots, when he asked: Would you like some sangrita? I heard the question as: Would you like some sangria? Sangria, as you may know, is a wine-based punch with fresh fruit and spices â€“ so refreshing on a hot summer afternoon. But we were enjoying our tequila on this trip so I quickly said thanks, but no thanks. He stood firm. You really should try this sangrita if you like the tequila. Its how we drink our tequila in the Yucatan â€“ its called Completo. Ok â€“ well Jos had not steered us wrong on the tequila so we acquiesced.
In the Yucatan, where we were, the sangrita is made with tomatoes in some form, lime juice, orange juice, and some type of spicy pepper. In other regions, the sangrita is made with grenadine and orange juice with a dash of lime and spices the grenadine making it red.
What is the best tomato base to use?
I made another version with organic tomato juice as a base instead of bloody mary mix, clementine juice instead of orange juice, some cucumber and medium hot habanero lime salsa. He didnt prefer it it had an almost gazpacho quality which is not his favorite. I thought it was very fresh tasting and enjoyed it with the tequila.
