"The Vampiro has a fruity, lightly carbonated, and spicy taste to it.
I spend a lot of weekends in Guadalajara, Mexico, where Vampiros seem to be the most popular drink in town. The only trick to making these is to get Mexican sangrita, which is a mixer made with orange juice, chili peppers, and sometimes tomato juice, but don't get the one with tomato juice in the ingredients, it seems to take away the fruity taste. Brands like Viuda de Sanchez is the Best and is available in the U.S. through liquor stores and Latino specialty food stores but its hard to find but, I think if this drink became popular here in the States it would be available everywhere.
All of my friends I have introduce this drink to have always loved them and they keep asking for it every time we get together.
I just donít know why they are not popular here; hopefully I can start a trend here.
If you like Margaritas and want a spicy kick you would love the Vampiros."
You can play with the proportion to your taste, but these are the portions I use for me.
In a tall Glass, first rim the Glass with Kosher Salt, add about half or more Ice, a shot or two of Good quality Tequila, squeeze a Lime add a pinch of Kosher Salt if you like now, add Squirt till about four fifths of the glass full and now depending on how spicy you want it add Viuda de Sanchez stir it and Enjoy!!!
If you can't find Viuda de Sanchez, I've substituted it with a good quality Orange juice, a lime, and Pico de Gallo seasoning a good brand is Via nueva, but is won't make your drink red like Viuda de Sanchez mix will and thatís why the drink is call Vampiro (In English it translates to Vampire) because its looks red.

If you can't find Vieda de Sanchez, use the substitute shown, but add a touch of grenadine for the red coloring.
