Ingredients

margarita salt or coarse sea salt, for rimming glasses
1
lime wedge, for rimming glasses
1/2 c
frozen orange juice concentrate
1 1/2 c
orange juice
3/4 c
tequila (6 ounces)
2 Tbsp
cointreau or triple sec (1 ounce)
2 Tbsp
lime juice
3 c
crushed ice
1/4 c
grenadine
4 slice
orange, for garnish
4
maraschino cherries, for garnish

Step-By-Step

1Spread a layer of salt in a shallow dish. Run lime wedge around the rims of 4 highball glasses to moisten; dip rims in salt.

2Place orange juice concentrate, orange juice, tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice in a blender. Add ice and pulse until smooth. Divide margarita evenly among glasses.

3Tilt glasses and pour 1 tablespoon grenadine down the side of each drink; grenadine will sink to the bottom and create a sunset effect. Garnish with orange slices and maraschino cherries and serve.

4Bartender's Note:
The straight sides of highball glasses are ideal for achieving the sunrise effect. Traditional margarita glasses won't work if you want this look.
