Now, as far as where the Sex on the Beach cocktail recipe comes from, according to the Sex on the Beach wikipedia page, “There are several stories claiming to describe the origin of the Sex on the Beach. One claims that the cocktail originated in Florida, USA in the spring of 1987 coinciding with the introduction of peach schnapps.” The Sex on the Beach wiki also notes that “A bartender at Confetti’s Bar [is thought to have] devised the drink and gave it the name in a nod to the many tourists visiting Florida’s beaches each spring.” So yeah, when you think of the Sex on the Beach mixed drink, think of people getting down and dirty on Florida beaches. As a side note, even though the Sex on the Beach sounds like a cocktail that you’d only be served at a 21+ college party, it is, in fact, one of the cocktails on the official list of IBA cocktails. So any bar you got to in the U.S. should be able to make this bad boy for you.
