Although the tequila sunrise cocktail was popular in the 80s, it was actually concocted during the Prohibition era.


  • 1-1/2 ounces white tequila, iced
  • 4 ounces cold, fresh orange juice
  • Dash of grenadine
  • Slice of orange


  1. Place a highball glass in the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Pour the tequila into the prepared glass followed by the orange juice.
  3. Carefully add the grenadine so that it floats on top of the other ingredients. Garnish the cocktail with the orange slice and serve immediately.
