The above video by Drinks Made Easy demonstrates how you can make the oh-so-tasty concoction in a few simple steps...

Ingredients

1 1/2oz Tequila - buy the best quality you can afford

Orange juice - fresh is best, but any should suffice

A float or 1 1/2 oz of Grenadine

Garnish with either a cherry or orange twist (or both!)

Method:

1) In a glass filled with ice, pour in your tequila.

2) Fill the glass almost to the top with orange juice.

3) Gradually add your grenadine in a swirling motion to get the effect of a sunrise.

3) Garnish with a cherry, orange twist or both and voilà! You have yourself a Tequila Sunrise.
