Smoky Sunrise

Wake up to morning with this Smoky Tequila Sunrise which features fresh juice, spicy hot bitters and a little sweet and sour. This tequila cocktail intrigues with smoky, hot bitters, a touch of mezcal and that sweet mango base. Add in reposado tequila and you have your new morning cocktail. Or evening. It’s flexible.

Servings 1


  • 2 oz mango juice
  • 2 oz Dano’s Reposado tequila
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 3 drops Jamaican Jerk bitters more or less to taste – it’s a really HOT bitters
  • 3 dashes Hella Bitters Smoked Chili bitters
  • ¼ oz St Elizabeth’s allspice dram
  • ¼ oz hibiscus syrup
  • ¼ oz mezcal
  • San Pellegrino Aranciata orange
  • Garnish: pineapple fronds, tajin


  • Combine mango juice, tequila, bitters and allspice dram in a shaker.
  • Add ice, shake briefly to combine and strain into a tall, ice-filled glass.
  • Combine the mezcal and hibiscus syrup in a small jigger or shot glass and stir to combine. Pour that into the glass so that it sinks to the bottom.
  • Top with Aranciata soda and a quick shake of tajin.
