Here we go with a sweet, tasty Tequila Sunrise for this week’s SIGLERinPLACE Siglocktail!
This quite famous drink has only three ingredients—tequila, grenadine and orange juice—and is served unmixed to preserve the color of each layer.
Created by Bobby Lozoff and Billy Rice in Sausalito, California, it gained it’s legendary status after Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones dubbed their 1972 tour “the cocaine and Tequila Sunrise tour.” There’s been a movie, a rock tour and a few songs named after this delish drink, so let’s get to it!
As ever, livestream is tomorrow night and Thursday night at 6pm PST and we’ll be toasting with these yummy cocktails. Feel free to make this one (send us pics here if you do!) but as ever, you drink whatever you like best, or nothing at all, no worries!
TEQUILA SUNRISE RECIPE:
- 2 ounces blanco tequila
- 4 ounces orange juice, freshly squeezed

Mad Scientist Process of Assembly™:

- Top with the grenadine, which will sink to the bottom of the glass, creating a layered effect.
