There’s something beautiful about a Tequila Sunrise. It’s one of those pretty cocktails that balances the fruitiness of orange juice with the cool colour separation that happens when you add grenadine to the glass. For those who are unaware, the grenadine settles to the bottom causing the sunrise effect of red to orange from the bottom up.
This is also a great cocktail to make use of that Tequila bottle without having to eat salt and suck a lemon. I will warn you though these bad boys go down easy so be careful! Don’t say i didn’t warn you when your three tequila turns to “floor”.
On a serious note, this drink will take you back to the beach on that vacation you loved so much when the kids weren’t screaming and all you could hear was the waves hitting the shore.
Now get out that Tequila bottle and let’s do this!Print
