Drink of the Week: Nebraska Sunset

Hello, NowOmaha.com readers! As summer nights begin to give way to the crisp whisperings of autumn, our Drink of the Week is a vibrant, fruity cocktail that pays homage to the stunning summer sunsets of Nebraska: the Nebraska Sunset.

The Nebraska Sunset is a layered drink that combines the sweetness of grenadine, the citrusy delight of orange juice, and the smooth notes of vodka. Topped with a splash of club soda, this cocktail gives a bubbly finish that mirrors the sparkling stars beginning to appear as the sun dips below the horizon.

Here’s the recipe for the Nebraska Sunset:


  • 1 ounce grenadine
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • Club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange slice and cherry for garnish


  1. Fill a tall glass with ice cubes.
  2. Pour in the grenadine.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, shake the orange juice and vodka together, then carefully pour the mixture over the grenadine in the glass to create a layered effect.
  4. Top with a splash of club soda.
  5. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry on top.

As you sip your Nebraska Sunset, let it transport you to a serene prairie evening, complete with a breathtakingly colorful sky and the tranquil sounds of nature. It’s a wonderful way to toast to the end of summer and the onset of the harvest season. Enjoy!
