Tequila Sunrise Cocktail Recipe

Daytime Drinking: Tequila Sunrise

The tequila sunrise cocktail lives up to its moniker as a day-drinking delight. But with the wholesome OJ and eye-opening appearance also comes tequila, so approach with caution.

Layered with orange juice, grenadine, and booze for a stunning effect, the tequila sunrise is one of my favorite afternoon cocktails, bridging the gap from mimosas to more serious mixers.

With the Super Bowl coming up — and kicking off at 3:30 p.m. on the West Coast — this cocktail plays great on game day. The grenadine's sweetness is offset by the toughness of the tequila. Get the recipe.

In keeping with the color scheme, I like to garnish this drink with a slice of blood orange and a cherry.
