To misquote the Eagles, this is not just another Tequila Sunrise…
Perhaps more akin to a Singapore Sling than the Tequila Sunrise we’re most accustomed to (a mix of tequila, grenadine and orange juice, or a steamy, romantic 1988 thriller with a mix of Michelle Pfeiffer, Mel Gibson and Kurt Russell), Gene Sulit’s version (invented at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel) consists of such:
Biltmore Original Tequila Sunrise
1 1/4 oz. Premium Tequila
3/4 oz. Créme de Cassis
Fill glass with cracked ice. Add tequila, Créme de Cassis and a squeeze of lime.
Fill with soda. Garnish with fresh orange wheel and enjoy.
