Tequila Sunrise

  • Author: Tara Smithson

  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


This Tequila Sunrise Recipe is so delicious and super easy to make with only a few ingredients. Push those mimosas aside and make this your new go to brunch drink!


  • A glass filled 1/2 full with ice 
  • 1 oz tequila (I used Patron Silver, which I highly recommend)
  • 3/4 cup orange juice 
  • 3/4 oz grenadine
  • Orange slice and maraschino cherry for serving


  1. Fill cocktail glass half way with ice.
  2. Pour 1 ounce tequila over the ice. 
  3. Next, add in the orange juice. 
  4. Lastly, pour in the splash of grenadine. DO NOT STIR. We want the colors to separate, just like in the picture. 
  5. Garnish with orange slice and cherry.
