SoWal Mixologist: Shannon Davis at Great Southern in Seaside
August 2, 2012 by Whitney Rowan
Shannon Davis at Great Southern is one of my favorite bartenders on Scenic 30a. I’ve never seen her without a smile and a great story to tell.
One of the great cocktails that Shannon serves up is her signature drink, the S.O.S. It’s made with Stoli Limon Vodka, Peach Schnapps, freshly squeezed orange and a splash of Red Bull. It is so refreshing on a hot day!
Speaking of peach, it seems to be on trend with Shannon and the other bartenders at Great Southern. You have the Peach Bellini (with whipped cream) and the Peach Mojito just to name a couple.
And just the other day Shannon unveiled her new peach shot which I helped name, the “Peaches of 30a.” It’s made with Ciroq Peach Vodka, frozen peaches, peach juice, muddled pineapple pieces and pineapple juice. It might be one of the best shots I’ve ever had (and I’ve had quite a few shots in my time).
Shannon has been at Great Southern for 4 ½ years and usually works during the day. Her other favorite watering hole is Local Catch Bar & Grill, where she proudly boasts that she is the Mayor on Foursquare.
