Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz. tequila, 3 oz. orange juice, 1 tsp. grenadine

Directions: Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a large, chilled cocktail glass. Pour in the grenadine and stir gently, for no longer than is necessary to produce the sunrise effect (you know, layers of oranges and reds and whatnot--or, you can just shake the grenadine in with everything else; we do). This baby is usually served on the rocks, in a Collins glass; our way looks better. If, however, you just can't bring yourself to squeeze your own oranges, better build it on the rocks--with store-bought OJ, it turns out kinda thick.
