In celebration of Dia de los Muertos I would like to highlight a basic Tequila Sunrise. There are many variations of how people like to make a Tequila Sunrise, some people use lemon juice or cherry brandy, but I like to stick to a more traditional Sunrise.
1 oz Light Tequila
½ oz Grenadine
Fill glass with ice. Add tequila, as always I prefer to use white Sauza, fill glass with orange juice and top off with Grenadine. No need to stir! Let the Grenadine settle at the bottom. As you drink the Grenadine will rise – hence Tequila Sunrise.
I love to mix tequila! Personally I like to add a tad more Grenadine to mine. Sometimes if I add a lil too much I will stir it up which makes it taste mucho better! Hope everyone is enjoying Day of The Dead!
