Raise a glass of this piquant cocktail to the dearly departed on Día de Muertos. Inspired by a classic New York Sour, bourbon is replaced by Hornitos Black Barrel Añejo tequila — which is an ideal substitute for bourbon-based drinks as it undergoes a similar aging process in deep charred oak barrels — and mixed with orange juice, a splash of lemon juice, egg white, and agave, then finished with a Cabernet Sauvignon float and a couple bourbon-soaked cherries.

Recipe for Sunrise Sour:
1.5 oz Hornitos Black Barrel Añejo

0.25 oz Agave
0.5 oz Cabernet Sauvignon
Add the Hornitos Black Barrel, orange juice, lemon juice, agave, and egg white into a Boston shaker. Dry shake, then add ice and shake again. Pour over fresh ice into a double rocks glass, and using a bar spoon, float the Cabernet Sauvignon on top. Garnish with bourbon-soaked cherries and enjoy!
