Do you know what’s really easy to make? Tequila sunrise cocktails.

Do you what’s just as easy to make? You guessed it – tequila sunrise slushies.

It’s super easy to make a tequila sunrise and I’ve taken this easy summer cocktail recipe up a notch. You only need three ingredients for this cocktail – orange juice, white tequila and grenadine. Fun fact – grenadine is made from pomegranate juice. I bet you thought I was going to say cherry juice, didn’t you?

To make this fun slushie, empty an ice cube tray and pour orange juice into the open spaces. It takes a few hours for them to freeze and it’s better to wait until they get as frozen as possible.

Pop those orange ice cubes in a blender with with your favorite white tequila and blend away. Pour this slush mixture into glasses and add grenadine. Grenadine is naturally a heavier liquid so it sinks to the bottom – you can pour it right in the center, or off to one side so that it sinks.

This leaves you with a super fun slushie cocktail that is perfect for summer parties! Garnish with an orange slice and some cocktail cherries.

The traditional drink is served over ice so you may find this version to be a little strong. If that’s the case, add a few regular (non-orange juice) ice cubes to the blender. This will simulate ice cubes melting as if you were drinking a traditional tequila sunrise.

You could easily double or triple this recipe and serve it in a pitcher. You could also freeze the orange juice in batches and store the ice cubes in a freezer bag for when you’re ready to throw a party. I don’t know about you, but I’m always hosting my neighbors and I’m definitely the one bringing the drinks!

I love tequila sunrises! It always reminds me of vacationing in a tropical island somewhere. This is such a great twist on it! I always thought it was complicated to make (I think the whole liquid ombre effect made it seem so), but now that I have your recipe, I'm definitely giving this one a try. Thanks so much for sharing another awesome recipe with us on #shinebloghop, Jenny!
