Tequila Sundown

Valentine’s Day is coming soon!  I will be sharing the recipe for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift in my next post, so stay tuned!  In the meantime, I thought of sharing a drink recipe.  I would have wanted to re-create a more distinct “sundown” effect in the drink, but I had no luck… I tried it twice and the result was the same.  Anyhow, they still looked cute and tasted great, so I won’t complain too much.  If you have any tips on how to keep the colours separate, please let me know!!!  In the meantime… cheers! <3


Recipe adapted from Pomwonderful 

Ingredients (per serving):
30 ml – 1 oz. pomegranate juice
45 ml – 1 1/2 oz. Tequila
10 ml – 4 oz. fresh orange juice

Fill a highball glass with ice.  Add the Tequila and the orange juice and stir.  Slowly pour in the pomegranate juice and let it settle.  Before serving gently stir it once to create the sundown effect… hopefully you are luckier than me!!! ;-)  Decorate with orange peel and some pomegranate seeds.

    Very pretty for Valentine’s day. If you want to keep the look of the seperated colors, mix OJ and Tequilla, then pour pom juice on top. Very pretty pictures too :)

  2. Manu, gorgeous pics – definitely trying this sundowner!

  3. This has all my favorite ingredients in it!! Maybe I will try it with rum instead of tequila :-) Thanks again for linking up at my v-day blog hop :-D

  4. What a lovely drink Manu. I found this little youtube that shows you are supposed to ‘bleed’ the red liquid slowly into the orange juice and not stir. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BW3O1D4LpE8

  5. This would be a tasty and refreshing pre dinner drink…YUM!

    Beautiful drink without the layers! I’ve had tequila and orange juice, but never with pomegranate. That makes it a healthy drink right? :) Sounds delicious!
