Much like a tequila sunrise, the ruby rum sunrise features the rising of grenadine throughout the drinking experience. The only difference here is it's set against a lighter, ruby red grapefruit backdrop and prefers rum over tequila.

Though you could simply pour the main ingredients into the glass, it's actually better to shake them before straining over ice. It makes the entire drink lighter and ensures the sour mix is sufficiently blended with its compatriots.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the rum, grapefruit juice and sour mix into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  2. Strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice.

  3. Pour grenadine on top until it covers the bottom of the glass.
