What's this?
This isn’t your average tequila sunrise.

Sure, you could settle for a standard Tequila Sunrise. But wouldn’t you rather enjoy a cocktail with orange curaçao, prickly pear syrup and yuzu juice?

This recipe originally appeared as part of “8 Cocktails to Drink on Cinco de Mayo Instead of a Margarita.”


  • 1 1/2 oz Azuñia reposado tequila
  • 1/2 oz Orange curaçao (such as Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao)

  • 1 slice Jalapeño
  • Garnish: Dehydrated orange wheel


  1. Muddle the jalapeño slice in a shaker, add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake.

  2. Double-strain into a rocks glass over ice.
