This beverage is so beautiful, people think it takes hours to make. But busy cooks will be pleased to know it calls for only three ingredients. --Rita Farmer, Houston, Texas

Frankly, I don't care what you call this - makes no difference to me. All I care about is that Hubs and I got a kick out of this - like making microwave potato chips or shaking cream in a jar to make buttter. It was kind of like a child's activity/experiment that briefly made you feel like a kid again. In fact, when Hubs was down to the bottom of the glass it occurred to me that he had never stirred it up - so how was he going to rate it? He said he didn't mix it because it was pretty. He also said that it kind of reminded him of a Tootsie Pop where you have to get to the inside to get to the treat. Like the Tootsie Pop, you enjoy the top part of the drink but then you have to wait till you get to the bottom to get to the sweet, syrupy treat. He thoroughly enjoyed himself making it, looking at it and drinking it. By the way, Hubs, believe it or not, is in his fifties. Read More

MY WORD! i absolutley love this recipe. I had a cold/flu for about 2 or 3 weeks, and after a few days of drinking nothing but oj, it got tiring. The pom. gives a unique twist to the common orange juice. ill serve these at any girls night in. The only suggestion id make, is using alittle more pom syrup. It adds more flavor, and color, yummm!

This is tasty and pretty! I have done similar mixed drinks with these ingredients and added a tropical flavored rum and made into beachy summer cocktails. I was planning on making "Mimosas" (orange juice and champagne) for Christmas brunch, and I might just add a little grenadine. And, make a non-alcoholic one as in the recipe, in a pitcher, for the kids. Read More

I have been making my grandson these for years (we call them sunrises but I like your name better)...I wanted to try Ashley's idea of adding rum but I'm out of white rum (only have the gold & was afraid of adding too much rum taste) so I added a shot of vodka to mine. Yummy! Read More

Anyone who has been to a bar knows this is a tequila sunrise minus the tequila. If you really wanted to try something interesting, cut the orange juice with some champagne and serve it for breakfast. Then at least it's an interesting version of a mimosa. Read More
