There are as many speculations about the origins of the Sex on the Beach cocktail as there is variations on it's recipe. The IBA (International Bartender's Association) calls for vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry and orange juice - this version can be found here - Sex on the Beach.

Another popular variation of the recipe calls for replacing the Cassis/Chambord (that is found in the recipe below) with Midori Melon liqueur.
