Texas Sunrise Mocktail

There is nothing quite like waking in the early morning to catch a glimpse of a breathtaking Texas sunrise.  The brilliant, bright orange and red hues light up the sky beckoning you to make it the best day ever.  But, let’s be honest, it isn’t often that I drag myself out of bed early enough to enjoy natures glorious display.  Instead I like to enjoy my mornings with one of my favorite drinks, a Texas Sunrise Mocktail.

This is a great kid-friendly drink too. My kids love sipping on this pretty and fancy morning drink, it definitely beats a boring glass of milk. The only thing that could make this drink more extraordinary would be sipping on it as dawn turns a golden, firey hue of delicious colors as the sunrise makes it’s way high into the wide open Texas sky!
