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.

Instructions

  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.
