I love a good brunch cocktail. This one reminds me of a Tequila Sunrise (hence, the name!) but perhaps a little more elegant. I added lots of pretty little fresh plum slices and used a good-quality agave tequila. Any type of soda that uses some real fruit juice will do the trick here. I used an organic Italian blood orange soda made with real juice and cane sugar. This cocktail tastes ripe, sweet and refreshing and is a fun way to put to use the beautiful, juicy plums that are perfectly in season in Colorado right now.
