The Best Sex on the Beach
There is something so luxurious about sipping on a cocktail on a beach somewhere tropical. But, even if you're not on the beach, this sex on the beach drink will give you all the island vibes.
Every sip is sweet, fruity, flavorful, and just so darn refreshing! Whether you're relaxing inside at home, by the pool, or lucky enough to be on the beach, this mixed drink will hit the spot every time.
And it's just so much better to make yourself than overpaying for one at a bar or restaurant. Seriously, the ingredients to make it are super reasonable, and it literally takes seconds to make!
Also, since it's so simple to whip up, it makes the perfect drink to make if you're hosting, and everyone is sure to love it!
This refreshing and delicious sex on the beach cocktail only requires 4 simple ingredients. And I wouldn't be surprised if you have every single one at home already!
Here are all of the sex on the beach ingredients:
- 20mL peach liqueur (peach schnapps is the most popular one used)
- 50-60mL orange juice
- 40mL Vodka
- Splash of cranberry juice
Some cocktails come with a laundry list of ingredients, but not this simple mixed drink.
It kind of reminds me of my jungle juice and sugar free margarita recipes. So you should definitely try those alcoholic drinks next!
SEX ON THE BEACH RECIPES
There are a few ways you can play with this classic sex on the beach recipe to change up the flavor!
Here are a couple of suggestions for you to try:
- To make it sugar free, simply swap the cranberry juice and orange juice out for ones with no sugar
- If you want something a bit more tart replace orange juice with grapefruit juice, this will also make the cocktail a beautiful rose color.
- Sex on the Beach is a pretty tropical cocktail, but if you want to amp up the island feels, try using coconut rum instead of vodka.
- Add a little extra flavor by using any flavored vodka.
- Swap out the vodka for rum for a little bit of a spicy twist.
- And for my favorite, add a splash of Sprite for some bubbles.
How to Make a Sex on the Beach
Now, you don't need to be a mixologist to make a really great sex on the beach. And even if this is your first time mixing an alcoholic drink, it'll turn out perfect!
So, get the ingredients together, and let's get to mixing!
Step 1: Prep
Every drink is only as good as the glass it's served in, so get out your favorite cocktail glass! Here is my favorite one to have beach drinks out of. Also, since it's insulated, it keeps the ice frozen and the drink nice and cold the whole time you’re sippin’ on it.
Now, put a couple of iced cubes in the glass so it's prepared for the liquids.
Step 2: Making Sex On The Beach
So, once you've got your glass ready to go, it's time to channel your inner bartender and make this drink.
First, pour in the peach liqueur - I like to use peach schnapps. Then, add the orange juice to the glass, followed by the vodka.
To top it off, lightly pour a splash of cranberry juice and then give it a good mix. And if you're using a cocktail shaker, shake everything together.
Finally, garnish with half an orange slice, and enjoy. Cheers!
Wrapping It Up
Well, that is how to make a sex on the beach drink that tastes like it was made pool side at a 5-star resort.
And, yes, it really is that simple to make!
Also, if you make this drink for your friends, don’t be surprised if they start asking you to make it at every social gathering you host. It's fruity and refreshing with the perfect amount of alcohol, so you'll feel satisfied after every sip.
Anyway, I hope you find this recipe as tasty I do.
