Mixing Up a Tequila Cocktail


Do you have a go to cocktail for evenings at home or hosting friends? I’ve been in need of an easy cocktail recipe that goes beyond my normal repertoire of whiskey and water, but I also didn’t want to spend 10 minutes with a cocktail shaker or a muddle. I’m not trying to pull out a torch to set my drink on fire or add in 5 different herbs.

Luckily, I worked with Gran Centenario Tequila and Agavero Orange Liqueur to create a drink that you can throw together in under a minute, which makes it perfect for easy entertaining. You can mix up a delicious cocktail while still carrying on a conversation with guests. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that this particular drink let’s us hang on to those last days of summer.

Since I’m not usually a tequila drinker, I’d never even had a classic Tequila Sunrise, but I’m not sure I need to now that I’ve tried this delicious take on it. Orange liqueur kicks up the classic recipe and makes just a bit more special.


1.5 oz. Gran Centenario Reposado
3/4 oz Agavero Orange Liqueur
4 oz. orange juice
Drizzle of grenadine

Combine tequila, liqueur, and orange juice. Drizzle in grenadine so that it spreads throughout the bottom of the glass, creating the sunrise effect. Cheers!
