How to get the tequila sunrise effect?

I always wondered how others got that tequila sunrise effect on their drinks. After, doing my research I quickly came to find that it’s a liquid by the name of grenadine that causes this effect. Grenadine is a nonalcoholic syrup that is red in color. It can give your drink a red or a pinkish look. So, there you have it. The tequila sunrise effect.
