Here’s another spicy tequila chaser. Felipe Camarena, founder of Tequila Ocho, a stand-out, single-estate tequila from the Arandas area, described to me a refreshing chaser that he had tasted in London, where tequila has become very popular. I made up my own recipe and call it “Sangrita Verdecito,” or “something spicy and green.”

Super easy
