I would like to share a special recipe with you. It’s a drink living up to the name of enigmatic nocturnal creatures that survive on blood: vampires. We’re about to celebrate Halloween and the popular Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Mexico is a country of traditions and ancient customs dating back to its ancestors, with an endless variety of traditional dishes and original drinks, among them one by the name of Vampiro to celebrate this holiday with its unique drink: Tequila. However, Vampiro has become an appealing drink for all occasions. When you have the pleasure of tasting a sip of Vampiro, your senses will experiment the mix of sweet, citrus and spicy flavors found in it. It’s an explosion of flavors worthy of sharing, one that includes an attractive red color due to the addition of tomato juice to the mix. Enjoy! MORE + LESS -
