Arizona sunrises are pretty great – and pair well with tequila. In fact, the original cocktail dubbed a Tequila Sunrise was served at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. Decades later, the newest hotel bar in Phoenix is serving up a new kind of tequila tribute to the Sun with a tropical twist.
Sip tip: Just like the sun never set on the English empire at one point in history, there’s always a “Rising Sun-appropriate” time somewhere in the world...
What you’ll need:
Avion Blanco tequila
Spiced pineapple syrup
Step 1: Mix tequila, fresh lime juice and spiced pineapple syrup
Step 2: Pour into celery salt rimmed glass
Step 3: Top with Lagunita Pils
