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.

Before making this, I had high hopes of a light, juicy mocktail, with a creamy finish. Based on the ingredients, it had potential.




It got scary quite quickly. The combination of grenadine and cream made for an unnatural bright pink combination. I cross-referenced a few similar drinks, but they all had the same proportions of cream and grenadine that would caused this colour.




After stirring, it still didn’t look all that attractive. Here’s the plain version, before decoration. It’s pink. That’s really all you can say. Pink.




I had added a new glass swizzle stick, to keep it cold. But to counteract the pink drink, it really needed the pink straw. And a slice of pink grapefruit (even though there’s no grapefruit in the recipe).

It’s rare that I find a mocktail I’ll never make again. If you don’t mind your kids having an excess of food colouring from the grenadine, and sugar from the cream, then you might like it.

Alas, back to the kitchen to make something nice.
