Recipe of the Week – Tequila Sunrise

posted in: Food & Recipes | 0

This cocktail is very pretty with layers of tequila and grenadine.  It is great for a hot a day and the low ration of alcohol to juice makes it perfect for a brunch.  Mothers day perhaps?




  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger (shot) tequila
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ice cubes
  • 1/2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger (shot) grenadine syrup
  • 1 slice orange, for garnish
  • 1 maraschino cherry for garnish



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. Garnish with a slice of orange, and a maraschino cherry.
