How did Sex on the Beach get its name?

Sex on the beach was named during spring break in Florida by a bartender named Ted Pizio in the 1980s. He wanted to find a way to promote peach schnapps so he concocted this drink and named it after the two things college kids want during spring break. This drink is loved by so many because the alcohol flavor is very mild thanks to all the other juice ingredients. 

How to Make Sex on the Beach Cocktail 

  • Fill your cup with ice.
  • Add 1 ounce of vodka, peach schnapps, and orange juice.

  • Slowly add the last ounce of cranberry juice to get that iconic color mixture.

  • Garnish with some cherries or an orange slice and enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

Storage

This drink is best enjoyed right away. Once you add the ice it begins to water down. If you want to save it for later, omit the ice and store it in the fridge for up to 1 day.
