Oh wait, Dulcie actually IS on spring break. Sort of. She’s visiting her family in Florida where it is 80 degrees. Meanwhile I’m trudging through the snow to give her cat insulin shots twice a day. I’m trying not to be jealous…
Now here’s a cool trick about making a beautiful Blood Orange Sunrise cocktail. You need to add the ingredients in a specific order to create the striations of color. It’s really easy: first ice, then tequila, then orange juice, and then the cool part: you slowly drizzle the syrup over the back of a spoon. This helps it gently disperse, but not mix into the drink too much, and arrive on the bottom of the glass in a pretty layer of red. Give it one gentle stir, and you’re done.
Garnish with a citrus curl, which we’ll show you a tutorial on next time!

Add ingredients to your cocktail glass in the order above, drizzling the blood orange syrup last (and over the back of a spoon, as shown). Give everything one quick stir, and serve.
