It’s unclear exactly when or where the drink was invented, but popular liquor-soaked lore points to a Florida bartender who created the drink in 1987 as part of a liquor distribution company’s promotion to sell peach schnapps. The only problem with that theory, however, is that the drink was already included in the 1982 “American Bartenders School Guide to Drinks.”
While no one can agree where the drink originated, many suggest the cocktail may have been invented when a bartender combined a Fuzzy Navel (peach schnapps and orange juice) with a Cape Codder (vodka and cranberry juice). Put those two drinks together, and all the constituent parts of the Sex on the Beach are accounted for.
