Cinco de Mayo Mexican Sunset

It works out really well when Cinco de Mayo falls on the weekend! Tequila is the “go to” liquor when celebrating, but instead of the usual Margarita or Tequila Sunrise, why not try a MEXICAN SUNSET?

It is a delicious tequila cocktail that’s beautiful, easy to make and “Oh so good!”


1 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Peach Schnapps
3 oz. Silver Tequila
6 oz. Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz. Grenadine
slice of lime
Maraschino Cherries


1. fill a shaker with ice and add the Amaretto, Peach Schnapps, silver tequila, and pineapple juice
2. place on the lid and shake
3. fill a tall glass with ice and pour mixture over the ice
4. slowly pour in the grenadine down the side of the glass so that it falls to the bottom
5. garnish with slice of lime and cherries
6. Enjoy!
