Tequila Sunrise

This is such a refreshing, colorful drink to enjoy during the summer.  The colors of the ingredients are layered to mimic a sunrise in a glass.  This version was invented by Bobby Lazoff and Billy Rice at the Trident Restaurant in Sausalito, California during the early 1970's.

You'll need a highball glass and crushed iced.

Pour one shot of clear tequila into the glass and add crushed ice.  Pour in orange juice to within an inch or so of the top of the glass.  

Slowly pour in an ounce of grenadine syrup until it settles in the bottom.  Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.
