Good morning everyone! It may be nighttime when you are reading this, but we are going to act like the sun is rising every time we make this tequila sunrise margarita recipe.

Rise & Shine!

Good morning everybody. Dang, I said that already. It does not matter because every morning is good when you wake up.

Furthermore, to celebrate another day, let us take a drink. What drink should we make this early in the morning?

We could make a brunch mimosa with orange juice. Maybe you do not like orange juice, but do not worry about that. Try this mango mimosa instead.

Man, those mimosas are delicious, but we are not talking about those drinks right now. The drink you need to be sipping on at 6 AM on a Wednesday is this tequila sunrise margarita recipe that will get you right any time of the day.

Yes, I know you may not be reading this on a Wednesday, but that is beside the point. You can make the tequila sunrise margarita recipe any day of the week.

Talking about making the at 6 AM on a Wednesday just felt right. Do not ask me why it felt right. It just felt right gosh dog it.

Almost forgot this is a family blog. Additionally, you are all going to make me say something explicitly, but I will keep my composer, and keep what I want to say to myself.

Tequila Sunrise Margarita Recipe Quotable

A wise man once said, “you can’t drink all day if you do not start in the morning”. When I heard that quote, I felt that.

Furthermore, do not look at this as an excuse to drink early. You are an adult! Do not let others dictate when you can and can’t drink.

Let me tell you a secret. When you are drinking the tequila sunrise margarita before 12 Am, the drink tastes better.

Tequila Sunrise Margarita Recipe Inspiration

I woke up with a bottle of tequila in my hand, and I saw the sunrise. I do not know if you have experienced this before, but when you are drunk off tequila, the sunrise is beautiful.

Truth be told, the sunrise is beautiful sober, but off that tequila, the experience just hit differently.

I saw that sunrise, drunk off tequila, then I started Harlem shaking. I promise you I did not do it intentionally, my body started moving on its own.

Furthermore, I just made that whole story up. The truth is that I wanted to make something similar to a Bahama Mama, but instead of rum, I used tequila.

As a result, the tequila sunrise margarita recipe was born.

Regardless, the tequila sunrise margarita recipe is worth trying and is delicious. In fact, lucky charms need to sponsor this post because this drink is magically delicious.

But Jeremy, tricks are for kids. You could have fooled me because I am going to do a trick to have you kids mind the business that pays you, while I drink this tequila sunrise margarita.

Is Tequila Stronger Than Vodka?

Tequila and vodka are not necessarily stronger than one another.

In general, tequila and vodka are 40 percent alcohol, however, there are bottles of both liquors that contain more the 40 percent.

What’s The Difference Between A Tequila Sunrise And A Tequila Sunset?

A tequila sunrise margarita has the same ingredients as the tequila sunset margarita. So, what would be the difference then?

The difference is that the tequila sunset margarita uses soda water.

After the soda water is in the drink, the grenadine syrup is added so that the red can be at the top of the drink instead of the bottom.

Grenadine, The Same As Triple Sec?

Grenadine syrup is not the same as triple sec, and here is why.

  • Triple Sec has an orange flavor, and the flavor of grenadine syrup is cherry.
  • Grenadine syrup is red and triple sec is clear.
  • You can use grenadine syrup to have a multi-layer colored drink. You will not be able to achieve this with triple sec unless other ingredients are being used.

Is Triple Sec Needed For Margaritas?

The tequila sunrise margarita recipe uses triple sec, but it is not needed. Simple syrup, or anything sweet is a good substitute for triple sec.
