Django Unchained is a western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film follows a slave who sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner with the help of a German bounty hunter.

I created a surreal drink for a surreal movie. The drink’s name, Mandingo Sunset, was inspired after their ride into the sunset at the end of the movie.


3 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
2 oz. orange juice
1 oz. lemon juice
½ oz. simple syrup
½ oz. Maraschino syrup



  • Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into ice-filled rocks glass. Drizzle maraschino syrup into the drink to create the sunset effect and garnish with orange.
