In the strange, uncertain times that we live in, it's easy to get caught up in all the negativity that is going on. Take a look at the news or social media, and you'll find plenty of pessimistic people talking about worst-case scenarios.
For today's Quarantine Cocktail, I want to get away from all of that a little bit and offer you some optimism. This is a somewhat original drink that I came up with thanks to some inspiration from my girlfriend. We were making Tequila Sunrises recently, and she said we should call them "Tomorrow's a New Day."
With that name in mind, I wanted to make this drink unique instead of just renaming a drink that already exists. Looking around the liquor cabinet, I found a bottle of pineapple rum that I thought would go great in this drink. It adds a little more sweetness and fruity flavor, while not becoming overwhelming. Perfect for feeling hopeful in times like these.
Tomorrow's a New Day
1.5 oz. tequila
1.5 oz. pineapple rum
3/4 cup orange juice
0.5 oz. grenadine
1. Add tequila, pineapple rum and orange juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well-mixed.
2. Strain mixture into a glass filled with ice.
3. Drizzle grenadine into the drink.
