Savannah Beach Sunset

Vickie Parks


While watching the movie inspired by Nicholas Sparks' book, "The Last Song" (2010, Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Greg Kinnear, Kelly Preston), I was so enticed by the incredible sunsets over the Savannah beach horizon. They featured such beautiful layers of soft pink, gold and peach colors. In creating this drink, I had hoped to capture some of those beautiful sunsets by starting with a base of peach schnapps, vodka and mango nectar. Then I topped it off with a drizzle of maraschino cherry juice to disperse in a random pattern, to resemble the different layers of a summer sunset.

  • 2 oz
    peach schnapps
  • 1 1/2 oz
  • 3 to 4 oz
    mango nectar
  • 1 tsp
    maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 slice
    fresh peach (optional garnish)
  • 1/2 cup
    ice cubes

How to Make Savannah Beach Sunset


  1. Fill a short glass with ice. (I used a short-stemmed chalice, but a 10-oz Old-Fashioned glass or a large wine goblet would work well, too.)
  2. Pour peach schnapps and vodka over the ice, and stir. Pour mango nectar on top and let it descend into the alcohol layer.
  3. Drizzle the cherry juice across the top, and let it slowly descend into the drink, creating a streaking pattern.
  4. Garnish with a peach slice and serve immediately.
