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.

  • Rocks glass

  • Shaker

  • No more than 2 ice cubes

  • Tequila

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