This pretty drink with layers of orange juice and grenadine is delicious on a hot day. The fact that the ratio of juice to tequila is high makes it a good choice for a brunch cocktail.

The classics just never go out of style - I did however use a bit less orange juice. I chilled the glass and used crushed ice - YUM! Read More
