Gina's Tequila Sunrise

I was very touched by the response to my post renaming Flame Lantana for Gina.
Something that I always intended to do.
Thank you so much, I think she would like it.
It was interesting how many of you had never seen a Tequila Sunrise up included
so I looked it up.
Here is a link to a recipe,
The photo is gorgeous
It's normally made in a tall glass but Wikepedia shows it in a highball glass,

Wow aren't they stunning!
I never thought it would look that good!
The tequila is mixed with orange juice over ice and the trick is to pour the Grenadine syrup down the inside of the glass so that it sinks to the bottom without mixing, poring over a spoon is said to help.
Wow must go and see if we have any Grenadine syrup left....dates back to our Pacific island days, I remember hating the stuff but the kids loved it. maybe I should change my mind!
Well done Gina, you were spot on.

I forgot to put in the link to my original post about Flame Lantana, here it is ....
Just read Gina's comment on that post, before she had the actual thread in her hands...

Makes me think of fireworks! I like lantana too, we just don't have much of it around here so it wouldn't be my 1st thought. I like bright colors.

So now I know that she did like bright colours.
I got as far as testing a skein today to see if the colours are right.
 Dont hold your breath this is a slow, slow process.
If you have any questions about this thread please email me.
Please know that this is just my memory of Gina.


  1. Oh, that is a beautiful drink! I don't think I'll be trying one, though. Tequila does not sit well with me. The thread, however... well, I think I might be able to tat something really beautiful with it... in memory of Gina, of course!

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what you tat with Gina's thread. It does look like she was spot on with the name.

  3. Take your time, great things take time.

  4. Bravo! I've never had this drink but I would like to try it now!....and the thread....wowza's!!!! I love the way the earrings Gina tatted came out identical to one another...that's pretty KOOL!

  5. I think this is a really lovely idea, one which is true to the spirit of Gina. I await the results with eager anticipation. :)

  6. Lovely tribute to Gina, Tatskool. Yellow threads are always awesome! My cousin made Tequila Sunrises for us to drink last night and I thought of her as I took a sip.

  7. Hi Tatskool, I have never had this drink but it looks amazing. We shall drink to Gina. I'm so glad you are back. Come by my blog for a visit today.

  8. The colors are so beautiful! And they look like they taste pretty good, too! Just like food, presentation makes a big difference.

  9. I love your enthuiasm and writing style. I am looking forward on reading the next hub. Rated up.

Every comment is much appreciated, but please try not to use my real name in a comment or on your blog. Tatskool is my on line name and one that I really like. Thanks.
