A Tequila Sunrise can be a less than appetising concoction of orange juice (all too often pre-packaged, rather than freshly squeezed) and tequila, stained at the bottom with grenadine to create the signature "sunrise" effect. Less well-known is the original, a rather more appealing combination of lime juice (fresh, of course), tequila and crème de cassis. This is our interpretation of the original version - as a cocktail slushie. Start this recipe a day ahead to freeze the granita.
