Tequila Sunrise with Homemade Grenadine

Tequila Sunrise with Homemade Grenadine


Classic Cocktail

I’m a huge fan of old fashioned cocktails and this tequila sunrise is no exception. Only three ingredients make up this delicious libation…how simple is that?! The homemade grenadine makes all the difference, so don’t even think about using that bottled stuff.

Tequila Sunrise recipe in second part of post…

Recipe makes one cocktail


3 ounces of good Tequila (Patron, Heradura, or Cazadores)

6 ounces orange juice

1 ounce homemade grenadine


Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour tequila and orange juice into glass. Lastly, add grenadine but DO NOT stir. The grenadine will fall to the bottom and create the “sunrise” effect. Enjoy!
