(I Wanna Have) Sex On The Beach

Woooaaaooooaaaooohh I wanna have sex on the beach, come on move your body!!

So as it turns out its not just a hit song from the late 1990's... its a simple yet tasty cocktail and yes, i hope that song is now stuck in your heads! The Sex On The Beach is one of them great cocktails that you almost always have the ingredients for in your booze cabinet and if you don't all the components are so cheap. Simple and delicious, i challenge you to just have one especially on a nice summers day! The ultimate camp retro favourite... proper 'Del Boy' and i'm not ashamed to say this cocktail is one of my guilty pleasures as its a drink that is very difficult to mess up, i mean virtually impossible. You can order a decent one in any bar and they never disappoint because they are so easy to make. I thought i would include a Sex On The Beach because they are very popular; i have lost count on how many i have sold over the years. The best thing is that they don't require any shaking you can make so many in a short period of time making them ideal for summer parties or BBQ's.


25ml Vodka
25ml Peach Schnapps
Orange Juice
10ml Grenadine


  1. Fill desired glass with ice.
  2. Add spirits and orange juice.
  3. Stir
  4. Drizzle on grenadine.

You can use near enough any fruit to top this cocktail with... think summer.

  1. Slice an orange into wheels.
  2. Cut a tiny slit into the side of the orange about 1cm long.
  3. Place the orange wheel onto the rim of the glass.
  4. Take a strawberry and slice it in half (removing the leaves too)
  5. Cut a slit into bottom of strawberry then rest on glass in front of orange wheel. 
Another good point to mention about the Sex On The Beach is that you don't need to use the most expensive ingredients... you don't have to use premium vodkas or branded peach schnapps and if you don't have any grenadine at home the good news is you can get a big bottle of the stuff from your local supermarket for as little as £4! You could even add a few dashes of Orange or Cranberry bitters to give it a bit more 'ooomph' if you wished but i wouldn't buy them in especially for this cocktail if you don't have them already. 

Also i wouldn't advise that you have actual sex on the beach as i have heard the sand gets in all the cracks... quite the painful obstruction. 

Until next time
Peace out!!!
