Tequila Sunrise Cocktail

Rosa Mexicano Restaurant Recipe

Sunrise Ingredients:
2 oz. Herradura Silver Tequila
1 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice
0.5 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
0.75 oz. Pomegranate grenadine

Grenadine Ingredients:
2 cups Pom Wonderful brand
pomegranate juice
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.

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I'm not a fan of herradura, but is a good tequila. I'm more into artisan made tequila and I usually go to Tequila or Arandas looking for something new; my newest discovery is tequila amor mío and I like it so much!
