Ingredients: 
1.5 parts Tres Agaves Reposado
5 parts Sangrita*
½ part Lime juice
Balance with grapefruit soda (squirt or Jarritos)

Sangrita Recipe:
2 oz Tabasco Sauce
2 oz lime juice
6 to 8 oz orange juice
6 to 8 oz grapefruit juice
1 tsp salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
15 oz tomato juice
1 Jalapeño pepper, halved (with seeds)

Directions: 
Build the drink in the glass by first putting the tequila in the glass, then add the sangrita mix and top off with grapefruit soda; stir ingredients together in highball glass and garnish with grapefruit wheel.
