There are so many cocktails one can make with tequila from the classics like a Margarita or Bloody Maria to a refreshing take on a Negroni, simply substituting tequila for gin. But we love the simplicity, flavor and look of this unheralded yet cherished cocktail. Fun Fact: If you find you don’t have any Grenadine use the syrup from the Maraschino Cherries in its place.
In a highball filled with ice stir in tequila and orange juice then add Grenadine (or cherry syrup) and let it sink to the bottom of the glass. Garnish with cherry and (optionally) an orange wedge.
