Sex on the Beach Drink

Please, no puns on the name of the Sex on the Beach cocktail recipe. Whatever you think of – it’s been done. However clever you think it is – it’s not.


Yes, even if your friends giggle and snort, that’s just because they’re a bunch of doofuses. And so are you. But what the hell?

That’s what kind of a drink Sex on the Beach is – fun, silly, light-hearted, easy-going fruity cocktail. And so delicious. Really a terrific flavor.

This was one of the first cocktails I ever tried. A bartender friend had recommended it to a bunch of us as a great choice for new drinkers because you couldn’t taste the alcohol that much.

We weren’t all new drinkers, but she said it didn’t matter because it tasted so amazing.

And she was right. That’s why the Sex on the Beach is a stealth drink – meaning it tastes weaker than it is. All that tasty fruit juice covers two full ounces of vodka plus an ounce of peach schnapps.

So while the alcohol flavor is mild enough for most new or occasional drinkers, the potency is actually a little higher than most cocktails. And that can lead to…unintended and sometimes funny consequences.

So just be aware this drink can sneak up on you. It’s not quite like a Long Island Iced Tea, but you may find yourself wobblier than expected after a couple of these.
