The Siesta Sunset is a chilled, light-strength tequila cocktail, sweetened with juice for a relaxing sip.

Did you know?

Did you know that the highball glass originally got its name from the high-ball signal used on the railways? When the signal was high, the train could go at full speed, much like how this glass suggests you're in for a full-flavored experience!

Picture this: a warm evening with the sun dipping below the horizon, the colors of the sky deepening to vibrant hues of orange and pink. It calls to mind a state of relaxation, a moment to unwind, and what better way to complement this scene than with a cocktail in hand? Enter the 'Siesta Sunset', a tequila-based concoction that beckons you to take a leisurely pause from the hustle and bustle of life.

This cocktail is a harmonious blend of the robust spirit of tequila, sweetened by the natural nectar of fresh juice. Served chilled in a highball glass, the Siesta Sunset’s gentle strength makes it an ideal companion for those slow, reflective moments. The orange peel garnish isn't just for aesthetics—it provides a hint of citrus aroma that completes the sensory experience. Each sip is an invitation to let go of your worries and embrace the serene spirit of a tranquil evening.


The art of creating a cocktail is much like painting on a canvas, except your palette is a blend of flavors and your brush is a shaker. Here's what you'll need for your Siesta Sunset:

The tequila blanco is a key player in our Siesta Sunset, bringing its clean, crisp agave flavors to the foreground while harmonizing sweetly with the lushness of the fresh juices.

  • 50 ml tequila blanco
  • 100 ml fresh orange juice
  • 25 ml pineapple juice
  • 15 ml lime juice
  • 10 ml agave syrup
  • Soda water to top off
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange peel for garnish


Assembling the Siesta Sunset is an easy yet rewarding venture. Each step is designed to layer flavors, creating a tapestry of taste that will transport you to your moment of relaxation:

  1. Fill a highball glass with ice cubes to chill.
  2. In a shaker, combine tequila, orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, and agave syrup.
  3. Shake well until the mixture is thoroughly chilled.
  4. Strain the mixture into the prepared highball glass over fresh ice.
  5. Top off with a splash of soda water for a refreshing fizz.
  6. Express the orange peel over the drink to release the oils, then drop it in as garnish.

Add some extra love

For an extra touch of elegance, run the orange peel around the rim of the glass before garnishing, adding a zesty aroma with every sip.
