Expert Tips

You may add the juice of half a lemon, if you want to give it a tart twist.

This classic Mexican recipe was created in the 1930s. It gets its name from the mix of grenadine, orange juice and tequila, which gives it a visual effect that is very similar to the colors of sunrise on the Acapulco beaches. It’s perfect for a brunch or can also go perfectly with a mid-afternoon snack in the company of friends.

Another version of this delicious cocktail is making it with rum instead of tequila. This would be called Caribbean Sunrise.

You can make it for the kids with grenadine and no alcohol.

Directions

  • 1 In a cocktail shaker or mixing glass, mix half of ice cubes, the orange juice and the tequila. Cover and shake well.
  • 2 Serve in tall or highball glass with the rest of the ice. Add cocktail mixture you prepared earlier. Lastly, pour grenadine without mixing so that it sinks to the bottom of glass.
  • 3 You can garnish this cocktail with sliced oranges and a cherry.
