The Orange Beach

Arden Ward Photography
Yield 2 servings
Inspired by the vibrant orange and pink sunsets over the Alabama Gulf Coast town of Orange Beach, this cocktail is a new spin on the classic Tequila Sunrise.


  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup blanco (white) tequila (such as Sauza Blanco)
  • 2 tablespoons cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • Orange slice or lime wedge (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Combine orange juice, tequila, cranberry juice cocktail, and lime juice and stir well. Serve over ice. Add grenadine just before serving to create the "sunset" effect. Garnish with a slice of orange or lime, if desired.
