Tropical Sunrise!

This week on Cocktail Hour, I wanted to remake the Tequila Sunrise but with Spiced Rum!

I have an app called “Drink Recipes” that I use for inspiration.  But this weekend, I found a part of the app I’ve never seen before… You can enter ingredients you have and either search for drinks that contain ANY of the ingredients, drinks that I can make with these ingredients, or drinks that contain ALL of these ingredients.  I was able to narrow down hundreds (thousands?!) of drinks to a handle!  I found this Tequila Sunrise drink and it sounded too good to pass up!  So here it is!
