**disclaimer:  No, I am not a lush.  I just enjoy a good boozy drink once in a while.  Ok, well, more than once in a while….but it doesn’t make me a lush.  Does it?  😉

No, not the real thing…..do you really think I would tell you about that?  lol  But I really have to say that I do enjoy a good glass (or 2, maybe 3) of Sex on the Beach whenever I can!  I also have to agree with one of my fans (Erin – you are so funny) that the drink is way better than the act.  Really, who wants all that gritty sand covering them?  (is Donna jumping up and down somewhere in bloggy land raising her hand high?  lol)  If you ask me, that is way too distracting.  ;o)

It’s no wonder I love this drink.  To say I love peaches is an understatement.  Getting a good peach however, now that is not an easy thing to always do.  However, with this drink, the only “peach” you need here is the peach schnapps and that stuff my friends is never bad.  Trust me!

Grumpy wasn’t so sure he wanted this drink.  He had his heart set on a Peach Mojito, but alas, the only  grocery store we have in town did not have any mint.  So, Grumpy had to settle for some Sex on the Beach.  Once he had one, he was ready for another!  The drink is slightly sweet, not sickly sweet.  They also go down pretty darn easy, so be careful consuming these!

So, grab your significant other and make yourselves a few of these babies.  Maybe by the time your done, you won’t care if your covered in sand!

cherries and orange slices compliments of me- cause what is sex on the beach without a cherry and the orange just helps decorate  😉

3 ounces orange juice (I buy Simply Orange pulp free)
3 ounces cranberry juice cocktail
1 ounce vodka (we use Sky Vodka)
1 ounce peach schnapps
glass with crushed ice

Mix, stir, pour, enjoy!

    Grittiness adds friction, enough said without further elaboration.

    And how on earth didja know I was raising my hand?

    The hubby and I have two drinks everyday. It sounds old fashioned but I greet him at the door with some sort of cocktail. We eat french style, though it is only a three to 4 ounce drink. We eat our meal with red wine every night and that too is just a small glass. We are happy parents of six kids so "sex on the beach" is not new to us. lol I love this drink. 🙂

    The great thing about "Sex on the Beach" like this is you don't get sand in your bathing suit.

    LOL – I love yours and Donna's comment. The first thing I thought when I saw your title was this post should be on Donna's blog.

    LOL, OK, yeah, I have to admit, this was fun. Even Grumpy wanted to hear the comments. I have to say though that Mags, you crack me up and Donna and Amanda, I love you for calling me a hussy! lmao

    You just reminded me that I haven't had one of these in years. After drinking a little too much peach schnapps once, I have stayed away from it. But I think it's time to go back. You make the drink look so pretty too.
