Ole` It's Cinco de Mayo

Happy 5th of May and cheers to all!

A Taquila Sunrise looks so pretty. Here's the recipe:
The tequila sunrise is a savory blend of orange juice, tequila, and a splash of grenadine. Here’s how to make a tequila sunrise cocktail.

Tequila Sunrise Recipe
1 ¾ oz. tequila
5 ½ oz. orange juice
1-2 dashes of grenadine
(That’s about a 3:1 ratio of orange juice to tequila)
Pour the orange juice and tequila in a highball glass. Stir. Splash in some grenadine so it slowly drops through the drink, creating a colorful effect that looks like a sunrise.
You can garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry. Serve with a straw.

Hi Barb, happy Cinco de Mayo to you too. I just had a Tequilla Sunrise about two weeks ago and it is a very delicious drink. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. I'll have to give it a try. :)

Have a great day today.

Oh boy - that looks as good as it did in the late 70's when I drank those at happy hours!
