It's Sunday morning (and remember, on Sundays, anything up to 1:15PM is technically "morning"). Maybe you're in the mood for a brunch-y cocktail, or perhaps you overindulged last night and you need a nice way to slide into the day. You need a hair of the dog—or should we say, pelo del perro? Enter the sweet and spicy world of the BLOODY SANGRITA.
Traditionally, sangrita is a palate cleanser enjoyed between sips of tequila. But award-winning mixologist (and aptly named) Ivy Mix cuts out the middleman by combining her own special Sangrita Mix with the tequila itself, giving us a unique take on a classic Bloody Maria.

She makes sure to add the seeds for extra heat, which provides a nice kick that'll wake you right up. Blend everything together with salt and a touch of cayenne, and you've got some gorgeous Sangrita Mix:
Next, she makes a beautiful half-rim of salt on the glass. Why half? So people can control the amount of salt they get with each sip:

And just like that, your morning gets 100% better. Learn how to make this sweet, sour, spicy, salty, refreshing Bloody Sangrita at Panna. View the full recipe: Bloody Sangrita
