History

Sex on The Beach was born in the 1970s, but its history begins in the mid-1940s when an American agricultural consortium began experimenting with blends of fruit juices and alcohol. The first experiment was the Cape Codder and then came the Sea Breeze, The Cosmopolitan and the Salty Dog.

The mix of vodka and cranberry juice was initially called Peach on the Beach and only in the late 1980s was the name changed as we know it today, only to be approved by the IBA in 2004.

Curiosity

In its first version, the Sex on The Beach recipe involved the use of Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur, and Midori, a melon liqueur which, being difficult to find in Europe, were then replaced by current ingredients.

Variations

Among the variations of this cocktail is Modern Sex on the Beach, in which the orange juice is replaced with pineapple juice. There are also non-alcoholic variants such as Safe Sex on the Beach (with peach, orange and pineapple juice and grenadine) or Virgin Sex on the Beach (with peach tea, orange juice and cranberry).
