I reckon it is out of fashion these days, but for taste and visual appeal, it is hard to beat a properly made Tequila Sunrise.

Nice, No I am not talking about getting plastered I just want to make a nice drink for her.

I do have a question regarding Margaritas though. I know they are pretty popular with young crowds and I have only made it once and it was incredibly strong. Every recipe I find is basically just tequila, triple sec (I used Cointreau which I know is a little stronger), and fresh lime. That is basically pure alcohol except for the lime juice. Something made me feel like this is not the Margarita that everyone raves about because it was not something you could just drink and enjoy because it was like drinking pure alcohol. How do I make a more drinkable Margarita?

Edit: I see after reading some other posts that some people think I may be irresponsible for requesting ideas of a drink to make for a girl? We are both of age and I am not looking for a way to get wasted (if I had that in mind, I wouldn't bother with going to the effort to make a good drink...). I know it is stereotypical for college age kids to drink a lot but honestly I don't drink to get drunk I just like to have a drink in moderation because I enjoy it. So... is that better then?
