Variations and note

You can serve it at any time. It was created in Mexico in 50s for welcoming tourists to Acapulco and Cancun. But there is also a nice urban legend about its creation. There was a bartender who stayed out late one night drinking with his friends. Late meaning about 9:00 am. The boss walked in and demanded that the bartender explain what he was doing. The bartender said he wanted to stay in the bar to concot a drink that looked like the sun rising. From this its name!
