Let me just begin by saying it was almost irresistible to NOT make an Eagles reference here. A lyric, a joke, anything. Be strong, Greg, be strong……
A Sunrise is a classic tequila drink, and a good one to practice layering with. The Tequila Sunrise takes progressively heavier liquids and serves them together, unstirred, for a cool “sunrise” effect in your glass. Add the ingredients in the order I show below:
- in a glass filled with ice, slowly pour:
- 1/2 oz granadine
- 2 1/2 oz orange juice
- 1 1/2 oz tequila
- garnish with a lime wedge
When you serve a Sunrise, give the drinker a stir stick or sipper straw so that they can stir their cocktail before drinking.
Mmm, I’m looking forward to trying this when it gets warmer. I’m always looking for ways to use my Jack Rudy grenadine since I’m not a huge sweet drink person, but this sounds great
Yeah I agree Caroline. I had fun tasting a bunch of grenadines a while back – I think Monin’s my favorite right now.
