A New Tequila Sunrise

- a shot of white tequila
- pineapple chunks
- pineapple juice
- grenadine
- a maraschino cherry

Pour the tequila into a glass, and muddle about five pineapple chunks into the bottom of the glass.  Fill the glass 2/3 of the way full of pineapple juice.  Drop a few ice cubes into the glass, and carefully pour grenadine down the sides of the glass.  

Sandwich a maraschino cherry between two pineapple chunks on a toothpick for garnish, and enjoy!

The classic Tequila Sunrise uses orange juice instead of pineapple juice, but since I had pineapple juice in the house and not orange juice I thought I'd give this a go.  The pineapple flavor complements the tequila perfectly, and the grenadine cuts the tartness of the pineapple.  Another great end of summer drink.  Have a lovely thirsty thursday, and happy DIYing, chris!
