Happy National Tequila Day!

Wed 02 Aug 2017

Celebrate with this twist on the Tequila Sunrise from Cornish chef & food entrepreneur James Strawbridge, packed with healthy ingredients and half the sugar content of the traditional cocktail.

“Tequila is the spirit of 2017 – this summer’s hottest drink is the Tequila Sunrise. To give it that healthy kick, I’ve added kale into the mix – a nutritional powerhouse packed with antioxidants.”



  • 60ml Cazcabel Blanco tequila
  • 1 tsp Clarks It Carob Syrup
  • 50ml orange juice
  • 100ml fresh kale juice – blend baby kale with a little water in a blender and strain
  • 15ml grenadine
  • Glass of ice cubes
  • 1 red chilli


  • Fill up glass with ice and add tequila and Clarks Carob Syrup.
  • Add the orange juice and stir thoroughly. Then top with kale juice.
  • Pour the grenadine down the side of the glass so that it settles at the bottom and appears like a sunrise. Ideally some clear colour layers blending from red, orange, yellow to green hues.
  • Garnish with a kale leaf and red chilli ring on the rim.
