Servings 1


  • 2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 5 ounces orange juice
  • 1 ounce +/- grenadine syrup
  • maraschino cherry and orange slice for garnish


  • Fill a rocks glass with ice.
  • Pour over it the tequila and orange juice. Stir.
  • Pour the grenadine down the side of the glass and let it settle on the bottom, then stir it a little so it looks like--amazing, I know--a sunrise.
  • Garnish with maraschino cherry and orange slice.


My sunset is a bit muted because I used grenadine syrup and cherries that are not dyed with red dye 40. If you use conventional, your colors will be more vibrant.
