Tequila Sunrise Recipe

This Mexican-style cocktail gets its name for the way the dense grenadine syrup sinks and then rises through the tequila and orange juice mixture creating the colors of a sunrise. Serve this popular beverage at your Cinco de Mayo fiesta.

  • 2 ounces gold tequila
  • 4 ounces fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 ounce grenadine

  • Place ice in glass so it is half full. Add tequila followed by the fresh orange juice.
  • Put a flat handled spoon into the glass. Add the grenadine quickly, allowing it run down the back side of the spoon so it sinks to the bottom of the liquid.
  • Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.
**Note: To make an authentic Tequila Sunrise, make sure to add the grenadine syrup last so that it can sink to the bottom and then begin to rise to create the sunrise effect.
