The history of Sex on the BEach
As with almost every classic cocktail: the origin of this famous cocktail is not provable beyond doubt. The most famous story about its creation says that it was invented in 1987 in a bar called Confetti’s (Florida, USA) by the young bartender Ted “Teddy” Pizio. When a guest asked him for the name of the cocktail he didn’t know, Ted was inspired by the springbreak vacationers who were there at the time and their behavior, and without further ado christened his creation with the name he knows today.
A nice story, but its truthfulness may well be questioned. What is certain, however, is that the cocktail was first published in the 1982 edition of the book American Bartender’s School – Guide to Drinks – five years before Ted Pizio allegedly invented it.
