Tequila Sunrise Cocktail Recipe

Tequila Sunrise Cocktail Recipe
This is one of the most beautiful drinks I know. A gorgeous sunrise of orange and red! Here's how to make a low carb version of the tequila sunrise.

Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients -

low carb orange juice

First, mix two shots of tequila with orange juice and ice cubes.

Then pour 1/2 shot grenadine down the side of glass to the bottom. It will slowly rise up through the OJ in a very pretty color gradient from red to red-orange to orange.

When you use a low carb orange juice, you get **90%** less sugar than normal orange juice! And to think parents feed orange juice to their kids as a healthy drink. The low carb version is only 4g of carbs per glass. The tequila is zero carb, as is it an alcohol.

What about grenadine? Grenadine is an interesting topic. You can fill up on Grenadine Info but in short it's just ground up pomegranates. If you get the fake stuff, it's sugar water with red food coloring :) So you either are getting fruit juice, or sugar water. It can be up to 5g if you go with the sugary variety. Read the above link about making your own, if you're not sure what your bottle holds.
