It was born in Miami in the 80s and gradually has spread to different countries. It’s one of the cocktails with more variations, though is based on vodka, but we can add different flavours of juices and other spirits.

There are several variations of this cocktail without alcohol, called ?safe sex on the beach?, rather than Sex on the Beach, as the traditional. And another with alcohol named ?oral sex on the beach?, with blue curacao; ?creamy sex on the beach?, which incorporates coconut rum and pineapple juice; and ?Greek sex on the beach?, with rum and tequila. There are variations for all tastes.
