Sex on the Beach
Sex on the Beach is one of many generic cocktails whose sole link is a reference to “doing it.” What’s in a name—indeed! Sex is often associated with cocktails, though such an observation would not surprise Freud or Kinsey, experts in the field. Sex on the Beach and its offspring are usually and appropriately called “shooters.” Sex sells, and these drinks are particularly formulated with the libido in mind. Some of the wildly inventive names are meant to titillate, while others are blatant forays into potty talk. Winston Churchill or James Bond would never sidle up to the bar and request a Bald Pussy or a Tony’s Screaming Weenie.
The names of these drinks are clearly fraught with double entendre—”I’d like a Screaming Orgasm, if you please.” And as with real sex, these drinks come with their risks. The generally sweet but seriously potent concoctions go down so easily that multiple Orgasms will often lay the young toper out prone for the wrong reason. Not everyone wants Sex on the Beach. Joseph Scott and Donald Bain, in The World’s Best Bartender’s Guide, give the recipe for the variant Sleazy Sex on the Beach as follows: “Add 1 ounce of Grand Marnier, but only if you’re feeling particularly wasteful and have little respect for Grand Marnier.”
- Stir all ingredients over ice in a highball glass.
- Stir together Juniper and Bay Leaf Syrup and lemon juice in a highball glass until well combined. Add tarragon and blackberries, and muddle until slightly crushed and berries are broken up.
- Add ice, top off with soda, and serve.
its a local mix, that has a taste of an expensive Bailey’s… this may have a lingering taste of coffee and milk that somehow may cover-up the taste of the rhum… but for sure, it will make your world upside down….
1 emperador lapad/any rhum
3 sachet 3 in 1 coffee
1 big condensed milk
water (500 ml)
dissolve the coffee in a half-glass hot water then pour into a big pitcher… pour the rhum and the condensed milk at the same time into the pitcher… add water, may depend on the how strong you want the mix to be… then of course, don’t forget the ice… then stir….
What to buy: All self-respecting margaritas are made with only 100 percent agave tequila (we like to use the high-quality Cuervo 1800, Patrón Silver, Herradura, or Don Julio) and Cointreau.
This recipe was featured in the 2006 Build Your Own Burrito Bar story.
- Combine tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau, and stir together.
- Rim a rocks glass with salt (optional) by pressing the glass into a wet paper towel, then dipping it into a plate of salt.
- Serve on the rocks.
