Viuda de Sanchez is used to fix "Coctel Vampiro" which translates to Vampire Cocktail in Spanish. This will spice up your Halloween party, Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebration, or any occasion.

Owned by Casa Cuervo, Viuda de Sanchez is by far the best selling sangrita (Spanish for little blood or bloody) in Mexico. Although it looks like a Bloody Mary Mix, it is much different in taste and ingredients. It is slightly viscous like juice concentrate and is just about as sweet. It smells and tastes like a Hawaiian punch/orange drink with a little spice.There are no tomatoes in sangrita; the red color comes from chili de arbol. It refreshes and cleanses the palate after each sip and enhances the taste of your favorite Tequila.
