This refreshing cocktail combines the sweetness of peach schnapps with the brightness of orange juice and adds a hint of raspberry from the raspberry liqueur. The luxurious addition of coconut syrup emphasizes the tropical profile, giving the drink a creamy and rich undertone. Served in a highball glass and often garnished with a maraschino cherry and an orange wedge beneath a paper umbrella, the Moana Sands is a visually appealing beverage that encapsulates the laid-back and indulgent spirit of island life.
