Tomato Water Sangrita

August 15, 2016

Author Notes: What to do with all that tomato water after canning tomatoes? Make sangrita. Sangrita (Little Blood) is served ice cold in Mexico next to a shot of excellent tequila. Doesn't that sound like a good way to congratulate yourself when the jars start pinging?MrsWheelbarrow

  1. In a 2-cup measuring cup or jar, add the tomato water, lime juice, orange juice, onion, and hot sauce. Stir vigorously.
  2. Chill one hour. Conveniently, about the time it takes to cook and process crushed tomatoes.
  3. Stir the ice cold sangrita well and pour into a shot glass. Into another shot glass, pour the tequila. Enjoy.
