Tequila Sunrise Cocktail

It is probably safe to say that most of the adult, civilized world recognizes “tequila sunrise” as an alcoholic beverage.

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.
