  • Cuisine: Australian


Obviously inspired by the refreshing “Sex on the beach” there are various combinations of this mocktail and cocktail.


  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • ice
  • slice of peach to garnish


  • Pour juices and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake, to cool the juices
  • Pour into highball glass
  • Garnish with a slice of peach

The original “Sex on the beach” cocktail definitely has cranberry juice, vodka and peach schnapps, but depending on you you speak to, has pineapple juice and/or orange juice.

Ditto the “Abstinence on the beach” – many recipes use coconut milk and frozen cranberry/grapefruit concentrates – but why use concentrates when you have fresh juice, and where did the coconut milk come from?

This recipe sits on the fence and uses both orange and pineapple juice – the latter adding a tartness that definitely wakes you up.
