It is only April and it is basically already Summer here in Southern California. According to the person in front of me in line for eggs at the Farmer’s Market this morning, this weather means we are in for a brutal summer in Southern California. People are fervently dusting off their shorts and sandals to head to the beach and regretting that six pack of beer they drank last night.
Hot weather means cold beverages are pretty much a body part on Saturdays (at least in my house), and Tequila Sunrises are at the very front of the pack because they’re made with fresh orange juice and they are SO easy to make it’s slightly worrisome. I’m hosting a brunch for my friends soon and this is definitely on the menu.
In today’s post, I’m sharing a Tequila Sunrise recipe & reviewing my Williams Sonoma Dual Citrus Juicer!
Tequila is such an underrated alcohol. It is associated with getting hammered at a college sports bar and nothing makes me more upset. I am literally the last person you will ever find doing a tequila shot (seriously, once I slammed my finger in a door at a Mexican restaurant and they tried to give me a shot and I told them to put it in a margarita) and I love tequila. Tequila is my favorite alcohol because when you pair it with citrus, it transforms from the ugly duckling into beautiful swan. CAN WE ALL AGREE ON THIS?!? OKAY GREAT.
1.5 Oz Tequila
4 Oz Orange Juice
A couple splashes grenadine syrup

Product Review: Williams Sonoma Dual Citrus Juicer
I used the Williams Sonoma Dual Citrus Juicer for this drink, and it only took me five minutes to get 2 cups of juice.
Overall: I love it. I would highly suggest for a budget friendly juicer that gets the job done! The measurements on the side are also super handy if you’re following a recipe that requires a specific amount.
Cleaning: Easy to clean, dishwasher safe, the whole shebang!
Thing To Note: It doesn’t filter out the pulp! If you don’t love pulp, then I would not recommend this product.
How It Would Be Better: I wish it had a lid once you finish juicing so I can just pop the lid on and put it in the fridge! Not a major pain because I just transfer it to another container to store.
