The flag of the country responsible for the spirit we love and the spirit itself as a tribute drink. Grito!
The Bandera drink is inspired by the colors of the Mexican flag. Though we never recommend the shooting of tequila, today we must make an exception. The Bandera drink is served in a series of three shot glasses consisting of fresh lime juice (to represent the Mexican Flag’s green stripe), tequila (to represent the white stripe), and sangrita (representing the red stripe). Each serving requires 1-ounce each of lime juice, tequila, and sangrita.

We do not purchase all the spirits we review here. Some we receive from the brand owner, some we receive from the distributor, and some we receive through PR companies. Some spirits we purchase ourselves.
