Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients

1 1/2 ounces tequila
3 ounces orange juice
1 teaspoon grenadine

Glass Type: cocktail glass
Instructions

Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a large, chilled cocktail glass. Pour in the grenadine and stir gently, for no longer than is necessary to produce the sunrise effect (you know, layers of oranges and reds and whatnot — or, you can just shake the grenadine in with everything else; we do). This baby is usually served on the rocks, in a Collins glass; our way looks better. If, however, you just can’t bring yourself to squeeze your own oranges, better build it on the rocks — with store-bought OJ, it turns out kinda thick.

Oh yeah — that competing recipe? Squeeze half a lime into a Collins glass 2/3 full of cracked ice, drop the shell in, add 2 ounces tequila, 1 teaspoon grenadine, 1 teaspoon crème de cassis, then stir and top off with fizz water. Not half bad.
