Sex on the Beach Cocktail

Probably one of the most entrancing and visually appealing cocktails you can make is Sex on the Beach. To make its beautiful gradient color, divide this cocktail into two parts: beach and sex. The beach part has peach liqueur, orange juice, and sometimes pineapple juice. The sex part, on the other hand, contains vodka and cranberry juice. The fun part is seeing the two components settle on the glass. The sex part sits on top of the base part (beach). To make the glass even more beautiful, don’t forget to garnish it with glacé cherries and orange slices.

Overall, the drink’s defining quality is peach liqueur so you don’t want to drown it with juice more than what’s necessary. For this cocktail, it’s important to make accurate ratios. Check our recipe below for a more detailed peach-to-fruit juice ratio.

Homemade Bellini-Tini

Judging from its name, bellini-tini is part peach bellini and part martini — like a cross between the two. In other words, it has the best of both worlds. It’s fruity and strong.

Berlin martini is the perfect cocktail if you’re looking for something that’s a little bit easier than the hula hoop.
