Like so many classics, the Sex On The Beach’s origins are steeped in vaguery and rumour, but the most widely accepted invention story for this cocktail is that it was created by Florida bartender Ted Pizio, who came up with the drink as a way to sell more peach schnapps and named it after the two biggest draws of spring break, ‘sex’ and ‘the beach’.

For our riff on this party-favourite we make it ‘mex’ by giving this drink a tequila base and swapping orange juice for pineapple. For our alcohol-free version we replace the tequila with Caleño Light & Zesty and use peach syrup instead of peach liqueur. The dry and citrusy Caleño gives the drink a distinctive tartness and the pineapple juice helps to give it a subtle, lingering fruitiness with a silky mouthfeel. This results in a pastel pink long drink with a foamy head and a fruity but complex flavour profile, a delicate balance between fun, fruity and grown-up that should appeal to almost everyone.
