Summer is the season where thoughts of work and responsibilities disappear briefly and you transport yourself to a hot country, lounging by the pool sipping on that perfect alcoholic beverage. Unfortunately, we can’t help you escape to a Tropical Island, but don’t fear, we can help you impress your friends by making the perfect cocktail this summer.
The best summer cocktails include super-refreshing strawberry-lemon mojitos and slushy frozen cucumber-honeydew drinks. However, Tequila Sunrise was voted the most popular summer cocktail of 2015. Are you just as shocked as we are? We dug a little deeper into the cocktail and it’s really quick and simple to make, perfect to add to late night BBQ’s this summer.
First off, ingredients. You need 1 measure of tequila, ¾ cup of orange juice, ½ a spoon of grenadine syrup, 1 slice orange/maraschino cherry for a garnish and a few ice cubes too keep it cool.
Stir or shake together tequila and orange juice. Fill a chilled 12 ounce glass with ice cubes and add the orange juice mixture. Slowly pour in the grenadine, and allow it to settle to the bottom of the glass (be patient). Garnish with a slice of orange or maraschino cherry.
