The Tequila Sunrise is a classic tropical cocktail perfect for summer. The main spirit of the drink is tequila and is combined with orange juice and a touch of grenadine, which gives the drink its unique “sunrise” gradient of orange to red. The Tequila Sunrise is commonly served in a collins glass with a slice of orange and a cherry to garnish.
