Tequila Sunrise Recipes

When you party hard like we do, you pretty frequently see the sun rise. And it’s just so beautiful that there’s even a drink inspired by it. Can you guess? The tequila sunrise, of course! It’s hands down one of the best easy tequila drinks you’ll ever have because you can’t go wrong with a little tequila and orange juice, can you? For our sunrise drink virgins, we’ll ease you in, but this is Tipsy Bartender, so we’re always doing something sexy and innovative. So grab your glass and enjoy our sexified tequila sunrise recipes!


Help! I’ve never had a tequila sunrise! What’s even in a sunrise drink??

Calm down, homeboy! In a classic Tequila Sunrise recipe, you have tequila and orange juice with a splash of grenadine. The gradient between the red and orange gives you those beautiful sunset colors. Make sense? And with only three ingredients, it’s probably one of the best easy tequila drinks ever. But of course we have other sexy spins on our classic tequila sunrise recipe. 


Really? What other tequila sunrise recipes are there?

We’re glad you asked! Our recipe for our Corona Sunrise absolutely slaps, and it’s like the younger sister of the tequila sunrise recipe. It’s that perfect easy tequila drink for our brunch and bikini babes. But don’t limit yourself to these occasions because topping off your sunrise drink with a Corona cuts the sweetness just enough so you can enjoy quite a few. For our friends that aren’t super big on beer cocktails, check out our Sailors Sunrise recipe. Come aboard this rumtastic version of the tequila sunrise drink. This tropical island cocktail version uses spiced rum instead of tequila, but the orange juice and grenadine are still juicy and poppin’. So party hard — and responsibly — so that you can see the sun rise as you sip it.
