Tequila Sunrise – Shake Drink Repeat

The classic tequila sunrise is one of the most popular tequila drinks (you too, Margarita). Its layered vibrant colors mimic a summer sunrise and its flavor is delightfully fruity. The “sunrise” appearance appears naturally due to the difference in density of the three ingredients, making constructing the refreshing cocktail quite simple. It is perfect for entertaining due to its aesthetic appeal and refreshing flavor.

Any cocktail that involves orange juice is perfect for brunch in my opinion and this is no exception. Similar to a screwdriver but with tequila instead of vodka, a splash of grenadine gives the golden sunrise appearance with a touch of sweetness that helps to balance the tartness of the orange juice.
