X-Rated Sunrise

Happy Friday to you all!  

There goes another week.  

It's been a crazy week for us all here and it is not over yet.  I'm looking forward to my husband BBQing dinner tonight though.  

In two weeks I have a get together with three ladies that when we were in High School we used to call ourselves the Freaky Foursome.  

I created this little BFF drawing where we could write it all in and we were totally cool.  One of these three I get to see at lease once a month when she comes up to visit us.  Another I haven't seen in six years when we all met at the San Diego zoo for the afternoon.  The third's been years!  

Sure I've seen her walking to and from her car at her folks house or I've seen her mom and said hello, but I haven't actually seen/sat down with/talked to her.......gosh I'd hate to say since High School......but it just may be that long!  

Needless to say, I am really looking forward to having cocktails with these three ladies!!

I gave this cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  

Some sips are better then others and they make me want to rate it a 3, but there are too many sips that are 2.5's.  

I have never tried X-Rated Fusion before.  

I went to their site which is where I got tonight's recipe and found a few different cocktails to choose from.  I had all of the ingredients for this one and that is why I chose it.  

I am looking forward to trying some of the cocktails that have vodka in them as well.  This cocktail is OK.  I wouldn't order it and probably wouldn't make it again.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is the recipe for an X-Rated Sunrise:

  • 2 ounces X-Rated Fusion
  • 1 ounce silver tequila
  • 2 ounces orange juice

In a tall cocktail glass filled 3/4 with crushed ice pour in your X-Rated Fusion.  Next pour in your tequila and finally your orange juice.  Give it a stir and drink.

Here's to my first X-Rated cocktail!

Hello! My name is Jen and I am The Cocktail Lady. I am a married mom of 4 who loves creating and trying new cocktails.


  1. This looks like an interesting cocktail. I am a bit curious why they removed the grenadine from the recipe since grenadine doesn't just color the drink but also sweetens it might be a touch better if a dash of simple syrup (or even better orange infused simple syrup) was added.

  2. You didn't mention what X-Rated Fusion 'is'... only provided a link to go check it out... what is it? What's it taste like?

    1. Thank You and you are absolutely right! I usually do say what it is and I completely forgot to here. :(

      X-Rated is (straight from the bottle's label): "A sensuous fusion of ultra premium french vodka & Sicilian blood orange mingling with mango & passion fruits".
