Celebrate Halloween 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! This version is extra spooky, and you can serve it at your Halloween party as a “Vampire Sunset.” Feel free to omit the alcohol for a sweet mocktail too.
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.
Use a plastic syringe for a Halloween touch. Fill the plastic syringe with grenadine.
In a tall cocktail glass, add ice. We used these Halloween themed glasses, and I linked a few options from Amazon that you can order for your Halloween party.
Add orange juice and tequila to a cocktail shaker and shake gently.
