Tequila Sunrise


  • 2 shots tequila
  • 4 shots fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 shot grenadine

For the homemade grenadine

  • 1 C. 100% pomegranate juice (I use POM)
  • 1/41/2 C. sugar (use more if you want a sweeter grenadine, lesser amount if not)


Make the Grenadine

  1. In small saucepan, combine pomegranate juice and sugar. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes until liquid is reduced and thickened a bit. Set aside to cool, store in refrigerator.

Make the Cocktail

  1. In cocktail shaker, combine tequila and orange juice. Pour in tall glass filled with ice.
  2. Slowly pour in grenadine and let it settle to bottom for a layered look. Or stir to combine if desired.
