Sex On The Beach

Day 2

(4 stars out of 5)

It's day 2 and I reinvented an old favorite of mine which I had actually completely forgotten about until tonight. The cocktail: Sex On The Beach!!  I had really forgotten how much I used to enjoy this cocktail.  It's super easy to make and YES it has more then 2 ingredients, go figure huh?  Up until a couple nights ago when I started this blog, I can't remember the last time I had an actual cocktail instead of a beer.  I have to say that I am very glad I took on this 365 day challenge, because I am really enjoying these mixed drinks.  Don't get me wrong, I sure do enjoy a nice cold beer......especially with baseball season right around the corner, but I have to admit that I am thoroughly getting a kick out of making these cocktails.

Tonight's drink I gave 4 stars out of 5.  I absolutely enjoyed this drink, but there's something about Husbands Hurricane that I like a little bit more.  Both drinks I would absolutely order at a bar hands down......just....not at the same time, don't want to give off the wrong impression.

Here are the ingredients to make a Sex On The Beach:

  • 1 shot of Vodka
  • 1 shot of Peach Schnapps
  • 2 shots of Cranberry Juice
  • 2 shots of Orange Juice
  • 2 shots of Pineapple Juice
  • 6 ice cubes (yes 6 of them once again)

Put all of the ingredients into your shaker and shake it up real good.  You always want to get these drinks as cold as you can which is accomplished by creating them inside your shaker.  Once you start shaking or stirring, it makes the shaker itself get cold where your drink is and that's what helps get your cocktail cold faster!

After all of that shaking is done, you can pour it into a glass like the one below, or 2 shorter glasses.  This is a MUST try, especially if you enjoyed Husbands Hurricane!

Hello! My name is Jen and I am The Cocktail Lady. I am a married mom of 4 who loves creating and trying new cocktails.


  1. I didn't get to try the Husband's Hurricane, although Adam really liked it... (still annoyed he didn't walk one down the street) but I REALLY liked this one.
    but I'm a total prude and will only order them at your house, not in a bar. :-)

  2. I learned about these in high school when we were on a family vacation to the Caribbean. It was evening, the island drums were playing, and a couple nearby mentioned "going for some sex on the beach" and I was horrified they were just announcing it like that! I realize now it was the perfect setting for it. I mean the drink, of course...

    1. That's a great story!! Ha ha!! I can only imagine the look on your face when you heard their announcement! That's great!!

  3. I made this last night. It was delicious!!! I made it the way you described then for my next drink I substituted strawberry vodka for regular vodka, then my next one I added passion fruit rum. I was in heaven! And not at all on the floor, as I was expecting, after having 3 drinks one after the other, lol!!

    1. You're hilarious! I love it! I'm sooo glad that you enjoyed all 3 versions of this cocktail! I just may expirement next time as well!

  4. This one was my reward for being at a meeting for the last two days :) I give it 4 shots out of 5 - tasty but a bit too much sweetness. I could basically taste the peach and the pineapple, but the cranberry did give it a pretty color. Since I don't have the lovely hurricane glasses you have, it filled a Magic Hat beer glass to the rim :) I'll probably make this one again with maybe one shot of each of the juices. I'll let you know how that one goes down.
