The Story Behind The Colada Sunrise

It might be time for a vacation. Lately I've been dreaming of a small island, someplace warm and tropical, where I can sit back and run my toes through the perfect white sand while sipping delicious cocktails.

This Colada Sunrise is just the thing. To riff on a traditional Piña Colada, I added some mango juice and grenadine, giving it lots of fruity flavor and beautiful colors. Best of all, it’s low-proof enough that you can probably enjoy more than one before moving onto your typical Daiquiri, Margarita, or other warm-weather drink.

  • 1 ½ ounces white rum
