The Tequila Sunrise was first concocted in the early 1970s at the Trident bar in Sausalito, California. Bartenders Bobby Lozoff and Billy Rice created this eye-catching drink, which soon caught the attention of rock legends.

Its popularity skyrocketed when The Rolling Stones adopted it during their 1972 tour, famously dubbing it “the cocaine and Tequila Sunrise tour.” This endorsement, along with the Eagles’ 1973 song “Tequila Sunrise,” cemented its place in cocktail history.
