Booze Cocktails

“Tequila Moonrise” Cocktail (aka My Blood Orange Tequila Beauty)


Blood oranges are in season, hot weather is right around the corner… I’m thinking a new tequila cocktail recipe is in order, aren’t you?!? WELL GOOD. Cause I got one for ya and it’s a beaut. 👌

 I’ll be the first to say, a Tequila Sunrise is never on my list of potential drink orders….but something about the blood oranges had me thinkin’ differently (really I just hate OJ haha). So I decided to twist the Tequila sunrise into a much more elevated drink by using only fresh ingredients and substituting the grenadine with 2 nice liqueurs as the sweeter element. PS: whoever is still drinking cocktails with grenadine in them… it’s time to stop. 🚫🍒

Now, orange you gunna try my new tequila cocktail?! Blood orange moon? (If you can’t tell, I’m performing at Clusterfest next weekend 😝🤣… wait but actually though, does anyone wanna buy my 2 tickets?! I really need to sell them!! So sad 😭).

See the Tequila Moonrise recipe below! 👇👇

2 oz Espolon blanco tequila
1 oz Amaro (Amaro Nonino is best)
.75 oz Domaine De Canton (ginger liqueur)
1.5 oz Blood orange juice (fresh is best! ✔️🍊😉)
.5 oz lime juice
1 generous pinch of fresh chopped ginger 


  1. Squeeze blood oranges and limes into separate bowls. Chop ginger as finely as possible.
  2. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake for 10 seconds.
  3. Strain into a low ball glass over ice. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and enjoy!🍹🍊

I’m lovinggg the balance of flavors in this drink! Nothing overtakes the next thing but all combine for a really refreshing, lightly sweet, versatile cocktail. I could drink this on my patio during a sunny afternoon (well, clearly i’ve already accomplished that👇)… or at night, in the booth of a Mexican restaurant. 🌮🍹 🌯💃  Either way, I’m extremely impressed by my own concoction hahah.😛🤗

Hope you give it a try!! Happy #SippinSunday 🍹☀️😄
