The average Tequila Sunrise is 250 calories, that’s a meal for me! I decided there had to be a better way, so I cut the juice and added more alcohol and go figure it dropped the calories!

You definitely get more “bang for your buck” not only is it a stronger drink, but it is also a good way to wow your friends and keep some cash in your wallet too. By swapping out the grenadine for a cherry you get both the color and the sweetness you will expect from a Tequila Sunrise, without all the calories.

Makes 2 cocktails-

  • 1 Jigger of Tequila
  • 4 oz Champagne or Sparkling White Wine
  • 2 fresh or frozen cherries
  • Juice of One Orange

Put a cherry in the bottom of two champagne flutes. In a shaker add the orange juice and tequila and ice, shake well and add to the champagne flutes, top with champagne right before serving.

Each cocktail contains:

  • Calories: 115
  • Fat: 0
  • Fiber: 0
  • Protein: 0
  • Carbs: 7
