Tequila Sunrise

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:

Tequila Sunrise

  • 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.
