This CLASSIC TEQUILA SUNRISE is stepped up a notch with the addition of Grand Marnier. Why not celebrate with this delicious cocktail this weekend?!
I grew up living away from my extended family. My Dad had a job that transferred us every two years (no, not the military) and so we were never just a quick drive from grandparents, aunts, uncles or cousins. That was fine because I had two brothers that I was always with (until we all made our own friends) and when family did come to town it was a reason to celebrate. That’s one thing that I love about my family. We understand the importance of family and try not to take any one for granted. We learned years ago that our time with family is limited and so we enjoy (or try to) every minute with family that we get. It’s a party and because it was a party we start our day that way. We’ll have a mimosa or bloody Mary but every once in awhile it will be changed up. One of my Grandfather’s visits we changed it up and he made my my first Tequila Sunrise and I LOVED it!
This Classic Tequila Sunrise is stepped up just a bit. I added Grand Marnier to it. It seemed like the perfect addition because it’s an orange liqueur and a tequila sunrise is made with orange juice. This drink is just screaming to be made for brunch. It’s made with orange juice and looks like/is called a sunrise! It’s so beautiful and easy to make. You’ll totally impress your friends and family with your bartending skills when you do this simple trick. Trust me your going to love this Classic Tequila Sunrise and so will your family when you celebrate your time together! When you make it take a pic and tag it #RHfood so we can check it out!
