How To Make A Tequila Sunrise Champagne Cocktail
- Brut Champagne
- Grenadine Syrup
- Orange juice
We used and recommend you try Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco from Mexico, this is a small batch of only 736 bottles and each bottle is signed. “It is a very nice and enjoyable Tequila to drink.”
Tasting Notes: “Hints of Smoky Wood, Crushed Herbs, Cinamon, Black Pepper and Spicy Chocolate.”
The Champagne we used was Delavenne Père et Fils Grand Cru Brut Réserve, 60% Pinot noir and 40% Chardonnay, this won a Gold Medal in ‘Classic and Elegant’ in the Glass of Bubbly 2017 Awards.
Tasting Notes: “A smell of pastry and sweet fruits with a crisp dry taste. This Champagne won a gold medal in the Glass of Bubbly 2017 Awards in Classic and Elegant.”
You’ll also need some Grenadine Syrup, if you don’t have any in your house then I recommend you give Teisseire Grenadine a try.
Any kind of orange juice will do fine.
And an ice cube or two depending on what glass you’ll be using.
Let’s Get Started
- Put in the ice cube or cubes into the glasses.
- Pour in a little Tequila.
- Fill up to about 60% with Orange Juice.
- Add a shot of Grenadine.
- Then fill up with Champagne.
And there you have it your lovely Tequila Sunrise Champagne Cocktail.
Tasting Notes: “It blends very well together, It’s incredibly well balanced and smooth. the top orange/yellow layer starts off tasting like toffee, caramel and Terry’s Chocolate Orange, the further you get down the sweeter it tastes. It is exactly like taking a bite from Terry’s Chocolate Orange, the Tequila is the main body of the cocktail expressing smoky/toasty notes.”
