With it being National Tequila Day, we want to awaken your senses with none other than a traditional tequila sunrise. It’s already late July, so what better way is there to greet those balmy nights and/or deathly hot days than with this refreshing citrus cocktail.

Alter your drink any way you please, but to get started, you’ll need:

  • 6 oz. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. simple syrup
  • 1 ¼ oz. tequila
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • 1 slice of lime

Mix together the orange juice, simple syrup, and tequila. Pour 2/3 of the concoction into a glass with ice. Combine grenadine with the remainder of the mixture and add to the glass. Garnish with the slice of lime and enjoy.
