Nothing says summer like Sex on the Beach

It's the first day of summer and one of the ultimate summer drinks is a Sex on the Beach.

Sex on the Beach is a fruity cocktail that is recognized as a standard by the International Bartending Association.

Though this drink actually has many variations, the standard recipe is as follows:

2 parts vodka
1 part peach schnapps
2 parts orange juice
2 parts cranberry juice

Pour all ingredients in a highball glass and serve on the rocks. Garnish the drink with an orange slice.

Now just to be different, I would love to try this with some of the flavored vodkas out there. I'm thinking pineapple or mango would make it a little sweeter and more tropical. But as the name suggests, this is the perfect beachside or poolside drink to enjoy your summer!
