Tequila-related question

Hey guys, there's something I've long wondered about and realized today that one of you guys might know the answer:

One of the things I remember fondly from when I lived in Mexico many, many years ago is something called "Sangrita." It was served in a little glass as a chaser to tequila, and (I think) had some fruit juices in it, maybe pomegranite juice. It was definitely red, hence the blood reference. I have never seen it in a bar here in the boonies (Reno), even those connected to a Mexican restaurant. Most of the bartenders look at me like I'm crazy when I mention it. I figure if its anywhere to be found, it might be in SF...maybe in one of the Mission restaurants. Since my sister is about to move to the Mission, I figure I'll be visiting from time to time....would love to down a few (I promise not to drive afterwards....)

Anyone familiar with this?
