Tequila Sunrise Cocktail

It is probably safe to say that most of the adult, civilized world recognizes “tequila sunrise” as an alcoholic beverage. The ingredients in a tequila sunrise cocktail consist of tequila, orange juice and grenadine. The combination of the aforementioned ingredients, because of their different densities, blend together to make “bands” of color which resemble the likeness of a sky at sunrise… hence, the name.

Others may know Tequila Sunrise to be a movie starring Kurt Russell and Mel Gibson.

Many of us also recognize, “Tequila Sunrise,” as the name of a Hollywood movie or... even more so as a hit song by, The Eagles. Back in the day, The Eagles, much like the tequila sunrise cocktail, were on a mission to separate themselves… not from each other but rather from the “norm.” The groovy era was a time of non-conformity and daring to stand out! This groovy group gave us countless songs that still resonate in our memories today and are epically reminiscent of days gone by.
