This fun, summer take on the Tequila Sunrise knocks out the grenadine for homemade raspberry syrup (don’t worry, it’s easy!) and a dash of blue curaçao for a drink that’s as tasty as it is colorful.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Tequila blanco
  • 3/4 oz Grand Marnier liqueur
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz Raspberry syrup*
  • 1/4 oz Blue curaçao
  • Garnish: Lemon twist
  • Garnish: Raspberry

Steps

  1. Pour the syrup into a Highball glass and fill with crushed ice.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to a shaker with ice, and shake until chilled.

  3. Strain over the crushed ice.

  4. Garnish with a lemon twist and raspberry.

  5. *Raspberry syrup: In a small glass, muddle 6 raspberries. Add 6 oz simple syrup and stir. Fine-strain into a separate glass to remove the seeds.
