Ingredients

  • 1 1.5 fluid ounce jigger tequila
  • ¾ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ice cubes
  • ½ 1.5 fluid ounce jigger grenadine syrup
  • 1 slice orange for garnish
  • 1 maraschino cherry for garnish

Instructions

  1. Add the tequila and orange juice to a cocktail shaker and shake them together. You can also stir them together if you don't have a shaker. 

  2. Fill a chilled 12 ounce glass with ice cubes and pour in the mixture. Slowly, carefully pour in the grenadine, allowing it to settle at the bottom of the glass. This'll take a few minutes, so be patient. Garnish with a slice of orange, and a maraschino cherry.
