This simple, celebratory cocktail with tequila, grenadine, and fresh orange juice can be topped off with Champagne or Prosecco for a sparkling finish and a festive twist on the classic Tequila Sunrise. To take it to the next level, make homemade grenadine—it’s easier than you think, and way better than most store-bought stuff.
