Raspberry tequila sunrise is a fresh spin on the classic cocktail. This version uses fresh raspberries and agave syrup in place of grenadine.
I’m not the biggest fan of tequila. If you’ve been following my blog, you are well aware that I love whiskey. You should also be aware that I am a muddler- meaning I love to muddle fruits into my drinks.
Tequila Sunrise (orange juice, grenadine, and tequila) was the first drink my dad taught me how to make. This is my modern version of the drink with a fresh spin. I muddled the raspberries with a little agave syrup to replace grenadine. I like it a lot better because the berries bring a great pop of flavor and the drink is quite refreshing.
Raspberry Tequila Sunrise (serves 1)
1 1/2 tsp agave syrup
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
2 oz (2 shots) tequila
Place raspberries and agave syrup in a glass. Muddle together.
Add fresh squeezed orange juice.
Add fresh squeezed lime juice.
Follow with 2 shots of tequila (of your choice). Stir contents together. Fill with ice. Garnish with extra raspberries.
Voilà. You are ready to enjoy a raspberry tequila sunrise. Cheers!
