I am a huge sunset lover!! My favorite place to be, is sitting on the beach watching the sun set over the ocean. Yes, I realize that this is a post about a Tequila Sunrise and not sunset, but they are both beautiful!
It is also a nice way to end this month’s Cooking with Astrology “Libra” series. It was a very challenging meal for meal to plan, given the fact that my ex is a Libra. So I needed the extra drink! No, not really. No need for an intervention, I just thought it was a pretty drink and decided to add it as a bonus.
They are so easy to make…..
…and quite delicious! Traditionally, a Tequila Sunrise is served in a highball glass with an orange and cherry garnish. The ratio is 3 parts Tequila – 6 parts Orange Juice – 1 part Grenadine. I decided that this smaller version was more appropriate for breakfast.
Thank you so much for joining me again this month, I hope you enjoyed the Spanish/Mexican inspired meal. We started unofficially with Margaritas…..followed by a delicious Zucchini Fritter with Pine Nut Sauce appetizer. The main course was those delicious Chicken Fajitas…..with a dairy-free Caramel Custard for dessert. Then my favorite breakfast, Huevos Rancheros served with this beautiful Tequila Sunrise!
Next up is Scorpio, the solar opposite of Taurus (me) and the sign of some of my closest friends. I am leaning towards Ryan Gosling for the inspiration, because…..Hey girl….. Those pinterest pictures crack me up!!
Happy Birthday Mark (my brother), Julie (this gal cooks), Mark (friend’s husband), Emily ( it bakes me happy), Jen (tatertots & jello), and Joan (chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate)!!! Like I said before, very popular sign.
