Raspberry Tequila Sunrise

raspberry tequila sunrise

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.
