Tequila Sunrise Cocktail
Rosa Mexicano Restaurant Recipe
2 oz. Herradura Silver Tequila
1 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice
0.5 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
0.75 oz. Pomegranate grenadine
2 cups Pom Wonderful brand
2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest
GRENADINE: In a saucepan combine pomegranate juice with sugar and stir. Bring mixture to a roaring boil. Leave at the boil for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and add the orange zest. When mixture is cool, strain into a sealable container. Keep refrigerated when not in use. Good for up to two weeks.
TEQUILA SUNRISE: Combine first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake hard with ice and pour over fresh ice into a pilsner glass. Insert straw (must insert before adding the grenadine, so not to agitate the flow). Slowly pour grenadine on top of the drink, allowing grenadine to sink to the bottom of the glass. Garnish with a healthy lime slice.
