Summer vacations put on hold? We know the feeling. What we wouldn’t give to be sitting on the beach somewhere sipping a tasty cocktail!
Well, we can’t transport you to the beach, but we can bring some summertime vacation vibes to your home with our favorite Sex On The Beach cocktail recipe.
Sex On The Beach is a delightfully fruity drink that screams summer sun and good times. It’s easy to make and oh so beautiful to look at.
To really bring the relaxing vibes into your home, we suggest you put on your swimsuit and set yourself up for a little stay-cation. Head outside, maybe dip your toes in a kiddie pool, and sip on this tasty summer drink and we promise — you will feel like you are on the beach!
We made this recipe earlier this summer during our live cocktail class with Northwest Event Show (see the video here) and we just had to share it with you here! You’ll need vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice, and an orange and lemon to make your drink. Optional: add a cherry for extra garnish!
This recipe is the classic Sex On The Beach cocktail, but there are lots of tasty variations out there. One we love has vodka, pineapple juice, cranberry juice, Chambord, and Midori (melon liqueur). Yummm!
Sex On The Beach is known for its beautiful layered look of orange and red. To get this effect, make sure you follow the order below as the cranberry juice will sink to the bottom of the glass!
We hope you enjoy your trip to the beach, and if you make this drink, make sure to let us know by tagging us at @partyontherocksseattle on Instagram!
