Tequila Sunrise Mocktails Are Easy To Make

by Alli

My Tequila Sunrise Mocktails are the easiest and prettiest drinks you will ever serve. Trust me. It’s such a refreshing summertime or anytime drinks for children and adults. Be sure to check out all my refreshing alcohol-free mocktails

Mocktails are all the rage! Whether you’re pregnant or entertaining kids, you should always have a mocktail option when hosting a party. There is usually someone like me who doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages. Mocktails like these always score points with guests who choose not to drink. 

Helpful Hint: I use the alcohol-free grenadine. Some brands do have a small amount of alcohol so make sure you check the label. 

The first time I fixed this for my grandchildren, they were mesmerized by the beautiful color and the refreshing taste. I served these drinks with appetizers for my daughter’s 25th birthday. You can find the menu and recipes for that party here.

What is a mocktail? 

Mocktails are drinks that are refreshing and contain no alcohol. Sometimes these drinks are referred to as virgin sunrise mocktails. Whatever you call them, they sure are good! 

Even if you do drink, when you host a party, you should always provide a mocktail or two. I don’t drink alcoholic beverages so it’s nice to have a pretty drink made especially for me.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Tequila Sunrise Mocktail is as pretty as it is delicious!

Ingredients

  • For one drink:
  • Dash of Grenadine
  • Ice
  • 1 measure of orange juice (according to the size of glass)
  • 1/2 measure of pineapple juice

Instructions

  1. Pour a generous dash of Grenadine into the bottom of a tall glass. Fill with ice. Add the orange juice and then the pineapple juice. Add a slice of orange and a cherry for garnish, if desired.
  2. Helpful Hint: Follow the steps exactly and make sure to add the ice after the Grenadine. The ice is what keeps the juices separate and the colors pretty.

The day I photographed this beautiful drink, it was raining cats and dogs outside, so I dashed outside between sprinkles and placed the drink on my pallet potting table. I love the way the photos turned out. If you look close, you can tell the table is wet. No, I didn’t step in a poodle. 🙂

Thanks! I’m always trying to come up with non-alcoholic drinks. Some, like these, turned out good. Some, not so much! 🙂

forgive me, but what is a measure and a 1/2 measure?

Reply
Alli March 12, 2016 - 6:30 am

A “measure” is whatever unit you’re using. For instance, if you use 2 oz. of orange juice, use 1 oz. of pineapple juice. Sorry for the confusion.
