Tequila Sunrise Recipe

Prep time
   5 mins

The Tequila Sunrise soared to fame when Mick Jagger tried one at a party for the launch of The Rolling Stones’s 1972 tour – and it then became the band’s go-to drink. Sweet, fruity and easy to drink, it makes a great Summer cocktail.


  • 200 ml orange juice
  • 100 ml tequila
  • 60 ml Grenadine
For the garnish
  • Marashino cherry and orange wheel.


  1. Pour the grenadine into the base of a tall glass and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila and orange juice. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels cold.

  2. Add a few ice cubes to the serving glass then carefully double strain the cocktail into it, trying not to disturb the grenadine layer too much.

  3. Add more ice if needed to fill the glass then garnish with a cherry on a stick and an orange wheel.
