The Best Tequila Sunrise

A Tequila Sunrise is the perfect poolside or beachside drink. This colorful cocktail gets its name from the beautiful colors in it that resemble a picturesque sunset.

The Tequila Sunrise can thank Mick Jagger for its popularity. Back in 1972, Jagger tried it at a party and was such a huge fan that he ordered it everywhere they played in The U.S. that year. The drink quickly caught on and skyrocketed in popularity.

There are a few different versions of the drink, but we like to stick with the original. Orange juice, tequila, grenadine, and a maraschino cherry make the perfect Tequila Sunrise.
