This is a popular Sex on the Beach and what is most likely the original. Popular substitutes include using pineapple for the orange, or Midori & Chambord instead of schnapps.

Add vodka and peach schnapps to a highball glass over ice. Fill with equal measures of cranberry juice and orange juice, and stir.

Original Sex On The Beach

posted by Chris @ 03:26PM, 6/01/06

1 fluid ounce vodka
1/2 fluid ounce melon liqueur
1/2 fluid ounce raspberry flavored liqueur
1 1/2 fluid ounces pineapple juice
1 1/2 fluid ounces cranberry juice

And if you like real fruit you can make a Sex On The Beach with Sand In Your Crack...simply add 6 fresh raspberries and blend.

The real original

posted by Matty from Italy @ 05:10PM, 10/24/06

I made many researches about this drink and I discovered that SOTB was born in the middle 80's in New York to promote a liqueur called peach tree. A Barman who live in NY told me that the Original Recipe was: 1,5 oz Vodka - 1/2 oz Peachtree - 2 oz Orange juice - 2 oz Cranberry juice. Sorry for my bad english.
Bigger portion works too

posted by Wu @ 09:14PM, 11/11/06

Had a party few months ago, and i made a 'group' sex on the beach. I had 1/10 of vodka and 1/10 of peach schapps. Reason for less alcohol is because there are less ice.

Anyway, best way to prepare is to drink and taste it yourself before serving.
Delicious, and yes! It can work on a larger scale!

posted by Alcohol. @ 08:28PM, 11/17/06

Well, it can work on a larger scale!

For example,
Since it requires 1 oz. of vodka, if you wanted to make a punch bowl for 30 people, you would therefore put 30 oz. of vodka. So on... and so on.
Also try...

posted by Mack @ 12:59AM, 12/04/06

If you just dont happen to have pineapple juice, a good quality orange juice (Naked) works well too. Or even Dole's Pineapple Orange Banana! GREAT!

posted by stace @ 06:43AM, 12/23/06

I did it with orange juice, tastes a lot nicer !

posted by Lila @ 12:56PM, 12/26/06

Much better with orange juice and grenadine I think.

Real sex on the beach

posted by Joe @ 09:34PM, 1/04/07

You don't want real sex on the beach anyway--the sand really hurts sensitive parts.

posted by K @ 03:06AM, 1/11/07

Whoever thought sex on the beach wasa shot is retarded... and you only want 1/2 oz peach schnapps.. and obviously add the pineapple juice

posted by little miss innocent @ 10:14AM, 1/22/07

I've never had sex on the beach but i figure a drink with a name like that has got to be good enough to pass for the real thing!!!
RE: Bigger portions

posted by rich from wrexham @ 04:17AM, 1/27/07

Yeah to give it bigger portions it's simple, just alter the vodka instead of 1 oz. 1L

And the peach 750 ml.

Then massively top up with about 1-1.5 L of pineapple & 1-1.5 of cranberry.

And that should make it scrum-diddly-umptious.

You never know you might actually think your having, sex on the beach ;-)
Yer all wrong

My friend denise thinks its the best drink money can buy, but I'd just rather vodka and ribena.

You can get mighty crunk off this stuff here man! Just make sure you got some cash to blow.
Sotb is almost as great as sex itself....

I only gave it a ten because that was the highest number available, but personally, i do believe it deserves a hundred to the tenth power. The best drink i have ever had.

I personally don't give a fuck what juice it has in it. This shit was good over ice on a hot summer day. It was about 25.00 for 10 servings. Great. Hey people when u post these blogs please put the amount of money you spent on the ingredients and the serving size u made, please. Thanks, Nina.

Everybody says its better with pineapple juice but do you substitute it with one of the other juices or so you add the pineapple, orange, and having a girls night and ive never made this before.
Want a hot one?

posted by Mongo @ 12:57AM, 11/18/07

This one sounds good, but the easier and more "effective" method?
2oz malibu coconut rum (any cocnut rum will work)
1.5-2oz pineapple juice
1.5-2ox cranberry juice
trust me, it's good, effective, and cheap to make. can also be made on a larger scale. i.e. beach orgies.

posted by alessandra @ 10:16PM, 11/25/07

Love it!!!
Very tasty!

Waaay back at bartending school they taught me how to remember this drink: What do you look out for when you're having sex on the beach? Answer: C.O.P.S (Cranberry, OJ, Peach Schnapps)
