Ok, this is not what you think, so get your mind out of the gutter. This is actually a recipe for a non-alcoholic variant of one of the most beloved of all alcoholic drinks, Sex On The Beach. The non-alcoholic variant is known by one of two names, the first is Virgin Sex On the Beach, and the second is called Safe Sex On The Beach. Simply put these drinks are a combination of different fruit juices, which can be a great thirst quenchers on a hot summer day.
Below are two of the more popular variants for this fantastic drink. The first one, which we will call Virgin Sex on the Beach, utilizes an interesting and equal combination of fruit juices and grenadine syrup. The second one, which we will call Safe Sex On The Beach, is also made up of fruit juices, but utilizes maraschino cherries instead of grenadine. Both taste fantastic, and both will be a hit at your next get together, or even as a drink that you may want to enjoy out on your porch during that next really hot summer day.
Virgin Sex On The Beach:
Perhaps one of the most simple drinks to make, Virgin Sex On The Beach simply requires following a simple formula to make correctly. In the ingredients list above, where ever you see an X, replace with the amount you want to use. The trick is to make all of the X's the same. For example, if you use 5 parts orange juice, that means you need to use 5 parts cranberry juice, as well as 5 ounces of peach nectar, and 5 tablespoons of grenadine syrup. Place all of the ingredients into a large pitcher, and mix well. Continue mixing until everything is well blended. Chill before serving.
Safe Sex On The Beach
Place all of the ingredients into a large blender. Pulse the blender on lowest setting until everything is well blended, and the cherries have been cut up. Chill the drink before serving, and enjoy.
As you can see, there really isn't that much difference between the two drinks. However, if you even change one of the ingredients, you will get dramatically different results. Experiment a little to see what combinations you enjoy the most, and serve that if you like. After all, the key to a great drink is experimentation.
