Sex on the Beach is one of the official cocktails listed by IBA (International Bartender Association). Though it is unclear as to when this drink was invented, it was included in American Bartenders School Guide to Drinks as one of its Official Drinks.
Coming to its name, I know it is very weird and suggestive. But again this name comes as a part of provocatively naming cocktails. Still at some point, it yielded interest in the minds of the customers.
This cocktail was actually popular in the 90s and is still popular at a Beach bar, probably. What makes this cocktail a crowd favorite is (apart from its name) its refreshing, fruit flavor. It isn’t hard to make this drink either.

Tips To Make Sex On The Beach

Variations Of Sex On The Beach
There is one important variation to this juice – which additionally uses Creme de Cassis. This is very optional, so you can choose to do it or just leave it.
And then you can make a Creamy version of Sex on the Beach. It uses Heavy Cream and a little bit of Coconut Rum (to provide more Tropical Flavor).
On the other hand, if you replace Vodka with Rum and add Coconut Rum & Coconut Water, you get Hawaiian Sex on the Beach.
Sex on the Malibu Beach gets a dash of Grenadine and Coconut Rum to the classic Sex on the Beach recipe.
Salted Nut Roll Shot, or the Salty Nut Shot, however you would like to call it, has a few different variants.
Nevertheless, all paths converge at the same point – to provide a Peanut Butter flavored shot drink. That is great as a dessert and also a great way to enjoy something new and sweet with your friends.
