Gin Sunrise Cocktail

Gin Sunrise

Bobby Lozhoff was the one who first came up with the Tequila Sunrise cocktail, and he inspired a variation on it called the Gin Sunrise. Just before the Rolling Stones went on tour in 1972, Bobby made this for Mick Jagger. After the tour, Keith Richards claimed that tour was known as the cocaine and Tequila Sunrise tour. Bobby made this for Mick Jagger just before the Rolling Stones went on tour in 1972.

On the other hand, the Gin Sunrise Cocktail adheres to the same formula, which consists of juice and spirits with a dash of Grenadine. In addition, in order to achieve a foamier consistency, we combined orange juice and pineapple juice for the juice component of this recipe. Give it a shot, and then share your feedback with me.
