There are a few stories of how the Sex on the Beach recipe originally came from. The most famous one is that in 1987 a bartender named Ted Pizio was inspired by a promotion to sell the most Peach Schnapps so he invented a cocktail featuring it. He named it Sex on the Beach because he thought that was the main reason that spring breakers visited Florida.
However, a recipe was found for the cocktail in an American Bartenders School book 5 years before Ted Pizio's inspiration. It's thought that the cocktail was probably invented when a bartender combined a Fuzzy Navel (Peach Schnapps and Orange Juice) with a Cape Codder (Vodka and Cranberry Juice).
Regardless of how this drink was first created, TGI Friday's added the cocktail to their menu which helped raise its status to where it is today.
