The Vampiro is the national drink of Mexico. It is said to have been created by fruit stand vendor Oscar Hernández in 1978 – who originally made the cocktail for himself. Oscar would mix a citrus-flavoured soda with Viuda de Sanchez, which is a Mexican orange juice-based sangrita. All that would be poured into plastic bags, that Hernández would draw from with a straw to stave off the blistering heat. The Vampiro is a cocktail that includes fruit juice, spices, fruit soda, fresh lime juice, and tequila.
