About:

Created in 1969 by Bobby “Robert” Lozoff, when a rookie 22 year-old bartender working at the Trident in Sausalito, California, USA.

The Trident, known for its attractive waitresses, was popular with rock ’n’ roll stars and one Monday night in June 1972, when the Trident was normally closed, it was the venue for an intimate Rolling Stones American Tour kick-off party. While Mick Jagger was at the bar waiting for Lozoff to make the Margarita he’d just ordered, Lozoff asked if he had ever tried a Tequila Sunrise. Jagger replied “no.” So, Lozoff made one of his signature drinks. Jagger loved the taste and that it was simple enough for the band to make while on tour. In chapter nine of Keith Richard’s 2010 book Life, he says “The ’72 tour was known by other names—the Cocaine and Tequila Sunrise tour.” The drink’s notoriety led its being printed on the back label of Jose Cuervo bottles. Then, in April 1973, the Eagles released their song Tequila Sunrise.
