Tequila Sunrise

Recipe by  

"This pretty drink with layers of orange juice and grenadine is delicious on a hot day. The fact that the ratio of juice to tequila is high makes it a good choice for a brunch cocktail."

  1. Stir or shake together tequila and orange juice. Fill a chilled 12 ounce glass with ice cubes; pour in orange juice mixture. Slowly pour in the grenadine, and allow it to settle to the bottom of the glass (be patient). Garnish with a slice of orange, and a maraschino cherry.

The classics just never go out of style - I did however use a bit less orange juice. I chilled the glass and used crushed ice - YUM!

i like this drink. it's quick and easy, the color is pretty and it tastes nice. i also tried using bottled orange juice and reduced the proportion into 1/2 cup instead of 3/4cup.

I love these, they are great. To make the grenadine hurry up a little bit, I pour mine through a straw.

Pretty good drink. I used a homemade grenadine.

Great recipe and if you substitute Tequila with Jägermeister, it tastes just like cherry fruit stripe gum.
