The Scarlet Ruse

The Tequila Sunrise is a simple bar drink made in an ice filled glass with orange juice, silver tequila and grenadine. I recently began to experiment with the juice from blood oranges in the recipe, and then I went even further and used an Añejo Tequila instead of a regular Silver Tequila. My new recipe, the Scarlet Ruse, tastes a little different; but it is just as delicious.

The Scarlet Ruse

1 3/4 oz Añejo Tequila
1 3/4 oz Fresh Squeezed Juice of Blood Orange
3/4 oz Grenadine

Build over ice in an Old-Fashioned Glass

Note: This cocktail continues my series of Tequila cocktails named after the Travis McGee novels of American author John D. MacDonald. I have always like the Travis McGee novels, and the titles of these novels just seem to me to be particularly well suited to be also the names of great cocktails.
