Tequila Sunrise Cocktail Recipe

A Tequila Sunrise is a classic cocktail with a beautiful, sweet and citrusy flavor. This delicious combination of orange juice, tequila, and grenadine can be served up as a refreshing drink on summer days or as an after-dinner cocktail. With just three ingredients, you can craft the perfect Tequila Sunrise in no time.

Ingredients Needed
To make one Tequila Sunrise you will need:

  • 2 ounces of tequila,

  • 4 ounces of orange juice, and

  • ½ ounce of grenadine syrup

 It's best to use fresh squeezed orange juice, but store bought works too. To give it a more authentic flavor you may also want to add some lime juice to the mix. Make sure to have all your ingredients ready before you start mixing!


Start by filling an 8-ounce glass halfway with ice cubes. Then add 2 ounces of tequila. Fill the glass up the rest of the way with 4 ounces of orange juice and top it off with ½ ounce of grenadine syrup for color. Stir everything together gently until all the ingredients are combined evenly and then enjoy! You can also garnish your drink with an orange wheel or cherry for added flavor and presentation value.

If you want to take this recipe up a notch try adding ¼ teaspoon of lime juice and ¼ teaspoon of sugar for extra sweetness. For an even sweeter version, use simple syrup instead of granulated sugar - this will give it more body and texture while still allowing that natural sweetness to shine through. As always, adjust your measurements according to taste!


The Tequila Sunrise is a classic cocktail that's easy to make at home using just three simple ingredients - tequila, orange juice and grenadine syrup (or simple syrup). Serve it up in tall glasses over plenty of ice cubes or garnished with fruit slices for extra flavor and presentation value. With its sweet and citrusy flavor profile and beautiful color scheme, this beverage is sure to be a hit among family and friends alike!
