Tequila Sunset

For this race we created a twist on a Tequila Sunrise, and used a local distillery’s maraschino liqueur, orange juice, black cherry juice and topped it off with champagne! We have a little snow in Colorado, but we are imagining the warm desert breeze, and beautiful sunset!  Cheers!

  • garnish with a fresh orange slice


    1. In a cocktail shaker, add tequila, maraschino liqueur and orange juice. Shake with ice and strain over ice in a glass.
    2. Using a straw sink the cherry juice to the bottom of the glass. (Use a large straw and slowly pour the cherry juice down the side of the straw. It doesn’t need to go through the straw, just down the side.
