Interesting facts

The Sunrise from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book isn’t the original Tequila Sunrise. Equal amounts grenadine, crème de Violette, Yellow Chartreuse, and Triple Sec are layered in this unique cocktail.

History of the drink

The first of the two Tequila sunrise variations are claimed to have been invented in or around 1930 in the Agua Caliente resort in Tijuana, Mexico, which gained popularity during US Prohibition.
