Tequila Sunrise cocktail has only three ingredients - tequila, grenadine, and orange juice - and is served unmixed to preserve the color of each layer.

It was Gene Sulit responsible for creating the first 'Tequila Sunrise' in the 1930s, combining Tequila, lime juice, soda water, and liquor. Over the years, it spread farther west, and eventually landed in the Bay Area.

Don't forget to see what other drinks you can make with the ingredients you already have in your bar.

  1. Add the tequila and then the orange juice to a chilled highball glass filled with ice.
  2. Top with the grenadine, which will sink to the bottom of the glass, creating a layered effect.
  3. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.
