I found this Applebee's concoction to be an accommodating TV viewing companion. The combination of tequilas, juices and syrups serve in a chilled martini glass is a refreshing recreation of the classic tequila sunrise, and it never wants to change the channel.

This is a GREAT drink! I've made it for my neighbors and it is now a neighborhood favorite (it is one of my favorites as well).

Tequilla is my drink of choice... this sunrise is the best!
