Recipe: The French Press Tequila Sunrise


  • 1 cup mango
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 4 oz tequila
  • 4 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
  • a splash of grenadine
  • a mango garnish

Our resident videographer, the amazing Chris Singlemann, is at it again!  Today he’s making a delish cocktail that’s perfect for brunch so get your notepad out, friends.  To start, grab a french press and fill it with a cup of chopped mango and pineapple.  If you want your drink extra fruity, add more before throwing in 4 ounces of tequila and 4 ounces of fresh squeezed orange juice.  Then, muddle up your fruit and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes – the longer the better because your drank will be that much more flavorful so practice patience, Nomsters.

A french press this size will make about 2 drinks or 1 REALLY big one if you want to get lit…and Chris definitely wants to get lit, ha.  Grab a big glass like he does and fill it up.  Finish things off with a splash of cherry grenadine, garnish with a mango slice, and voila!  You have yourself a fancy french press tequila sunrise!
