Tequila sunrise

Freshly squeezed orange juice is an absolute must to transform this drink. This classic cocktail has only three ingredients — tequila, grenadine and orange juice — and is served unmixed to create colourful layers in the glass, hence its name.


  • handful ice
  • 50ml/2fl oz tequila
  • 100ml/3½fl oz freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 5ml/1 tsp grenadine
  • orange wedge, to garnish (optional)


  1. Fill a collins glass with ice. Pour the tequila over the ice and then top with the freshly squeezed orange juice.

  2. Add the grenadine and allow it to sink to the bottom of the glass to create a layered effect. Garnish with the orange wedge if using.
