Tequila Sunrise


The Tequila Sunrise, with its bright striations of color, evokes a
tequila, grenadine and orange juice--and is served unmixed to preserve
the color of each layer.

The Tequila Sunrise was created by Bobby Lozoff and Billy Rice in
Sausalito, Calif. The cocktail achieved notoriety after Mick Jagger
began drinking it, and The Rolling Stones dubbed their 1972 tour "the
cocaine and Tequila Sunrise tour." The drink has been a part of the
cocktail canon ever since.
