Tequila Sunrise Cocktail

Tequila Sunrise

Bobby Lozoff created the Tequila Sunrise for Mick Jagger in 1972. Mick Jagger liked it so much that he took it with him on tour, and the rest is history. As a side note, the Eagles recorded a song called “Tequila Sunrise” for their Desperado album as the drink was soaring in popularity.
