I am taking part in the Stash Tea Blogger Recipe Challenge and I am really excited to share my entries with you! I have had so much fun testing recipes and looking at tea in a new way. My first entry is a twist on a classic and perfect for entertaining. Tequila Sunrises are usually made with orange juice, tequila and grenadine. Instead of buying grenadine which is pretty much red food dye and syrup I made a delicious and easy homemade syrup using Stash Pomegranate Raspberry Tea Bags! The flavor of the tea really shines through in this syrup and I love how easy it is to make the components beforehand, even the night before if you want. You won't be stuck mixing individual cocktails all night and each guest gets to make their own beautiful sunrise effect!

Stash sent me a fabulous selection of their teas to work with AND they're offering a discount code to all of my friends and family! Here's the CODE to the discount if you'd like to order some for yourself!
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 cups tequila
7 cups orange juice
10 orange slices
10 maraschino cherries
Place water in a small saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add in your tea bags. Allow to infuse for about 5-10 minutes. Once the tea has fully steeped, remove the tea bags and whisk in the sugar until dissolved. Let stand at room temperature until cool, about 1 hour, before refrigerating.
When ready to serve pour the tequila and orange juice in a pitcher. Pour the prepared tea syrup in a small pitcher. In highball glasses filled with ice, pour in the orange juice mixture. Slowly pour the tea syrup down the side of the glass, allowing it to settle at the bottom. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.
