Sex on the Beach Recipe

Sex on the beach is a simple summer drink (apart from its name). It’s one of those classic drinks that never goes wrong.

While the name might sound a bit extra,

This cocktail is all you need to impress your buddies with very little ingredients. Most of them are readily available!

So, let’s kick things off and get into the actual recipe of the delicious beach-party star.


The best thing about this cocktail is that you don’t need a lot of ingredients. You have the flexibility of changing things up a bit by replacing an ingredient to something else that you like.

As for the classic recipe, you’ll need:

  • A highball glass
  • An ice shaker
  • 1.5 oz. Vodka
  • 0.5-0.75 oz. Peach Schnapps
  • 1.5 oz. Orange juice (or Grapefruit)
  • 1.5 oz. Cranberry Juice

Some people prefer grapefruit or pineapple juice over orange juice. You can also experiment but we suggest sticking to orange juice if it’s your first time.

You can make things interesting a bit by altering the quantities of the ingredients here and there. But if you want to go the safe route, stick to the classic recipe.

You can even squeeze a bit of lime or lemon, depending on your preference.

Take some ice inside a shaker and pour all the ingredients inside it. Then, start shaking the mixture for about a minute or two.

Once done, pour the cocktail in a highball glass and voila! The classic sex on the beach is ready.

You can also pour all the ingredients into the glass and stir them well. But we think that the real taste of this cocktail is best when shaken, not stirred (James Bond style). You can garnish it with a few mint leafs or serve it as it is.

For all you Instagram lovers reading this, make sure you use a clear highball glass. It makes the cocktail look fresh and delicious.


Sex on the beach is ideal for all types of drinkers; even for people who have just begun.

The juices used in the drink go so well with the vodka that you don’t taste any alcohol! You can buy this drink for your date at the beach or simply enjoy it yourself.
