  1. Fill a tall glass with ice, tucking 3 orange slices decoratively between the ice cubes and the inside of the glass. Add tequila, then top with orange juice. Pour grenadine (or simple syrup) slowly over the top of the drink. Garnish with the remaining slice of orange and a cherry, if desired.

Tips

Tips: No grenadine? No problem. To make your own homemade grenadine, combine 1/4 cup pomegranate, cherry or cranberry juice (or water if you don’t have juice) and 1/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Heat to steaming over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally; cook until the sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Use Luxardo maraschino cherries (like the kind in the photo), if you can find them, for a sophisticated look and flavor.
