The Sex on the Beach is the classic swimming pool party drink to sip during summer time, but with the season of red oranges at full steam it would be a shame not to take advantage of it and drink this great cocktail.

The name of this drink might have lead to some of the most awkward conversations you may have had with bartender, but the drink is totally worth it. The name is said to have originated as a joke. Legend has it that in 1987 in Florida during summer break, a young bartender mixed up a concoction of peach schnapps, vodka, lime juice and grenadine cocktail and began selling it to win a local bartending competition. On being asked as to what the drink was called, he immediately made up the name “Sex on the beach” since he thought that the two major reasons of people flocking to Florida during summer break were the beaches and sex, hence the name.
