If you have any friends who gag when they hear the word “tequila”, make them one of these. They’re absolutely delicious and completely underrated. The best part is they’re simple drinks that are gorgeous and tasty. Here’s my recipe:
1.5 oz Tequila
Pour the tequila (doesn’t matter which kind you use, though I prefer either Cazadores or Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol reposado) over ice in a tall glass (a Collins glass works well). Fill the rest of glass with orange juice, and drizzle grenadine over the top. Garnish with an orange and a cherry.
You don’t need much. It’ll sink to the bottom and form this beautiful red layer, like sunrise. Some people stir their tequila sunrises, but I don’t. I think it works out better without stirring. Seriously, this is a solid all-around drink that’s worth your time to try. I’m a big fan.
