Cook's Note: Inspired by the colors of the Mexican flag, this drink is served in 3 separate shot glasses consisting of tequila (white), fresh lime juice (green) and sangrita (red) - a spicy tomato-based chaser. Each serving requires 30 ml each of tequila, lime juice and sangrita. The sangrita part of this recipe will make enough for 14 (30 ml) shots.

1) White part: fill tequila shot glasses with tequila.

2) Green part: fill tequila shot glasses with lime juice.

3) Red part: put all of the ingredients for the sangrita in a blender and process until smooth. Fill tequila shot glasses with sangrita.

4) Each guest is served 1 shot of each part or color to sip.

Notes: Sangrita can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
