The Tequila Sunrise

As legend recalls, a loyal and longtime repeat guest had returned to the Arizona Biltmore for vacation to soak up the desert sunshine. Having met Gene Sulit, the longtime resort bartender, on prior visits, the guest told Gene he loved tequila, but was looking for a refreshing beverage to enjoy poolside, and asked Gene to surprise him. By blending soda and tequila with Crème de Cassis and fresh lime juice, Gene created the foundation for what was to become an iconic cocktail made famous in songs, movies & American pop culture.
