Girl Gone Drinking: On this snowy day, drink tequila!

This drink is one I made frequently but never actually tried.

Bonus! I like the song too!

This week's drink—Tequila Sunrise.

Inspired by: “It’s another Tequila Sunrise, staring slowly across the sky... and said goodbye” -The Eagles, from the 1973 Desperado Album.

Guest tasters: The old man and the bartender.

What you need:

  • Rocks glass

  • Shaker

  • No more than 2 ice cubes

  • Tequila

  • Orange Juice

  • Grenadine

  • Orange slice

  • Maraschino Cherry

What you do:

  • In the shaker, add 1 1/2 oz Tequila or whatever...

  • Add 3/4 cup of OJ

  • Ad 3/4 oz Grenadine

  • Shake and pour into rocks glass with ice

  • Garnish with orange and cherry


The old man: 4/5 stir sticks. (He said I have too heavy of a pour. Whatever!)

The bartender: 3/5 stir sticks. (I like tequila but I can feel the heartburn already.)

I hope somewhere in heaven Glenn Frey is having one these!

What’s everyone else drinking today?
