It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Sometimes an ocean getaway is out of reach on a smoldering summer day. If you’re craving beach time, sand beneath your feet and a splash in salty water, the next best thing is Sex on the Beach. The iconically named cocktail, that is.

Refreshing and fruity, this cocktail is a harmonious combination of melon liqueur, peach schnapps, fruit juices and vodka. You’ll soon fall head-over-heels for this beach-worthy summer tipple.

Bottoms up, folks!
