Sex on the beach cocktail

This cocktail packs a punch, and is fantastic for guests, or to have as pre-drinks. The only problem with it, is that it makes alcohol taste so good that you will get that slight more tipsy than if you had something like champagne were the alcohol flavour is prominent. Made with pure orange juice and cranberry juice, this cocktail is a nation favourite.

There are subtle variations of this drink varying towards more cranberry or more orange, but this recipe is delightful featuring peach schnapps and vodka. Because this drink tastes so good, you should be careful not to drink too much as it is easily done. Always drink responsibly and know your limit. If alcohol is not your thing, you could easily make an alcohol free version just by skipping out the alcohol. Please adjust the recipe to your personal preference with more or less juice and for a classic twist, add fresh mint leaves, or glace cherries.

This drink reminds me of the hot summer sitting out on the patio with my partner, soaking up the sun and letting the ice cold drink cool me down! You can not beat a traditional sex on the beach, it is something I have as a go to order at my local wetherspoons, Pub, local club or bar.
