A Sunny Drink for a Sparkling Day


If you could capture the essence of a summer day in a cocktail, it would be a Tequila Sunrise. Sweet, bright, tangy, and oh so refreshing, a Tequila Sunrise is the perfect accompaniment after a day of boating in beautiful Lake County. 


1 12 ounces quality tequila

34 cup orange juice 

34 ounce grenadine syrup 

Orange slice and maraschino cherry for garnish 


  1. Fill a highball glass with ice.
  2. Add tequila, orange juice and ice to a shaker. Shake and strain into the glass.
  3. Slowly drizzle the grenadine into the glass, and let it settle to the bottom. 
  4. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry.
