Ingredients (4)

  • 1 1/2 ounces silver (blanco), 100 percent agave tequila, chilled
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice, chilled
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • Orange slice


Drinks writer Rob Chirico says the Tequila Sunrise—a blend of tequila and orange juice, with a grenadine glow at the bottom of the glass—is a Prohibition-era cocktail invented at the Agua Caliente racetrack in Tijuana, Mexico.


  1. 1Pour the tequila into a chilled old-fashioned glass, followed by the orange juice. Add the grenadine slowly, by dribbling it from a bar spoon. Garnish with the orange slice and serve.
