Drink Tank

    Staying true to its Mexican counterpart — the Tequila Sunrise — the Thai Sunrise combines essential elements of the Mexican concoction (silver tequila and grenadine) with the sweet-and-sour flavors of mango and lime. This tropical drink resembles less an exotic sunrise than a vibrant, moonshine Starburst, and is the perfect cocktail for a night of “Sex and the City” reruns. More sweet than potent, with just a hint of tequila, this drink may require extra servings.

    Note: The trick for its characteristic two-tone layers is to add the grenadine slowly so it settles at the bottom of the glass, creating the sunrise effect.

    2.0 fl. oz. of silver (white) tequila
