Tequila Sunrise

It’s always fun when Thirsty Thursday rolls around again. This week, Jen Baldwin is treating everyone to a colorful summer cocktail — with a side of tasty tortilla chips!

I love a pretty cocktail… who doesn’t? And I like Tequila, so it seemed fitting for me to make a Tequila Sunrise for my turn at Thirsty Thursday. You gotta love the bright orange sunrise/sunset effect that’s created by the combination of OJ and grenadine. And this is a drink that’s super easy to make. Check out the recipe below!

Recipe (serves 15):

  • 2 c. Grenadine
  • 9 c. Orange juice
  • 4 c. Tequila
  • Ice
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Orange wedges


  1. Add some ice to a large glass and pour in about 5 oz. OJ and 2 oz. of Tequila.
  2. Stir
  3. Add about 1 oz. of Grenadine which will sink to the bottom. Do not stir (so the Grenadine stays on the bottom).
  4. Garnish with an orange wedge and a cherry.

Then sit down and enjoy your cocktail —preferably while watching the sun set!
