Sex On The Beach

  • 50ml gin (the true recipe is vodka but we use gin for a more floral, herbal twist)
  • 25ml peach schnapps
  • 2 juiced oranges  OR 25ml orange juice
  • 50ml cranberry juice
  • Ice
  • 2 orange slices to garnish
  • Glacé cherries to garnish (optional)

If you don’t have measures, here’s how to eyeball it:

  • 2 fingers gin
  • 1 finger peach schnapps
  • 1 finger orange juice
  • 2 fingers cranberry juice
  • Orange slice to garnish
  • Top with ice and glacé cherries (optional)

The origin behind this one is varied, but the most popular story is attributed to Ted Pizio, 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 sweetness of the fruits comes to the fore here with this highly popular, easy to drink cocktail.
