This refreshing tropical garden-to-glass cocktail, Limoncello Sunrise, combines homemade Meyer Lemon Limoncello and orange juice with a splash of homemade Pomegranate Grenadine and some inspiring garden-fresh garnishes.
Garnish: A sprig of rosemary wrapped by a curl of orange or lemon zest. A slice of orange sprinkled with sugar and torched until crispy. Optionally, you can also soak cherries in grenadine overnight or longer for homemade maraschino cherries.
In a glass, add two ice cubes. Use a shaker filled with ice and add orange juice and Limoncello. Shake for 30 seconds, then pour into glass. Tip glass ever so slightly, and pour grenadine slowly down the side over the back of a spoon. When it pools at the bottom, that’s how you get the sunrise effect, it should quickly rise up.
If you made your own grenadine and it reduced too long, it may be too thick and you’ll need to stir a bit to get the effect.
