Sex On The Beach Cocktail Recipe

 The origin behind this one is varied, but the most popular one is attributed to , who was a Florida bartender in the 1980's. He came up with this concoction as a way to promote peach schnapps and named it after “sex” and “the beach” which he considered to be the two main attractions of Spring Break.

The original drink was made using peach schnapps, vodka, orange juice and grenadine. However, it is much more common to see bars serving it with cranberry juice, to replace the grenadine. This cocktail has been reworked many times, with the Woo Woo possibly being the most popular derivative, simply without the orange juice.

Sex on the Beach is very much a drink attributed to the 80s and is not as popular in modern bars as it once was. However, the catchy pop tune Cake by the Ocean, was created after the name of the drink got lost in translation with the Swedish producers working with the band DNCE.
