    The Tequila Sunrise 1 1/2 oz tequila 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice 1/2 oz grenadine syrup garnish with a maraschino cherry and orange slice Pour tequila and orange juice and mix together. In a tall glass, fill with ice cubes and pour in mixture. The secret is the red to yellow gradient. Take grenadine and slowly add it in to allow it to fall to the bottom. Take an orange slice and maraschino cherry and garnish.

    Originally created at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in the 1930ies, its first revival is due to a Rolling Stones party at the Trident in Sausalito where Mick Jagger liked it so much that he and his entourage started drinking them down and making it popular.
