tequila sunrise

jose cuervo tequila // simple syrup // grapefruit juice // lime

When I first started playing around with tequila cocktails, I was convinced I wouldn't like them. I thought that I would get caught up in remembering shots on a night out... However, I just love them. You can taste the tequila in this one, but with the sharpness of the grapefruit and lime and a slight undertone of sweet strawberry, all is forgotten.

If you are using your box to make 12 cocktails, you'll need 25ml of tequila, 100ml of grapefruit juice, a splash of strawberry syrup and a quarter of a lime.. If you want to make 6 stronger cocktails, I would recommend upping to 50ml of tequila. It's a taste preference, you're the creator, so just see how you go! 

  1. Add 25ml of tequila to your jam jar.

  2. Fill the jar with ice. You want this to be to the top of the jam, but so that you can also get the lid on. 

  3. Add 100ml of grapefruit juice. 

  4. Add a splash of the syrup. I don't like mine too sweet, so I would use just under a quarter of my mini jar. It's up to you though. Maybe try it with a little first and add more if you need to.

  5. Put the lid on and give it a good shake! 

  6. Put a straw in and enjoy.
