Celebrate summer with this delicious tequila sunrise cocktail recipe! Have you ever had a tequila sunrise? It’s a classic drink with tequila, orange juice, grenadine, and cherries. I promise that you will love it!
Since we live in Florida, I like to shake up a few cocktails that remind me of tiki bars on the beach. While I typically am not a tequila drinker, I do love a good margarita! This tequila cocktail is perfect even if you don’t like tequila. It’s a fruity concoction that will inspire you to plan a trip to the beach or reminisce about your last vacation.
How do you make a tequila sunrise?
For our version of a tequila sunrise, we used ice, grenadine, orange juice, tequila, and fresh fruit for a garnish. Try orange slices and cherries, but you can get creative with your favorites! A silver tequila works best and offers a light taste. While this recipe serves one, you can easily double, triple, or even quadruple it for a party.
In a tall cocktail glass, add ice and top with grenadine. Add orange juice and tequila to a cocktail shaker and shake gently. Pour into your glass. Garnish with fresh fruit and enjoy!
