From brunch to celebrations, this drink knows how to party

     The simple ingredients make this recipe attainable for any novice who can find their way into the kitchen. Begin by pouring the tequila into the bottom of your glass. Now add in the orange juice. Once those two have mixed completely, pour in the pomegranate grenadine. Watching the colors sift while the grenadine sinks to the bottom is half the fun. Optional: Try adding ice and a few pomegranate arils for pop and color. Some people like to garnish the side of the glass with citrus like oranges or pineapples.This drink pairs nicely with breakfast type foods like waffles, quiches and sausage. My friends and I enjoyed some homemade biscotti, eggs and sausage with our tequila sunrises just the other day. I love it with a salad as well.
