Sex in the Driveway Drink is a fun, bright blue cocktail perfect for spring and summer. It has a punchy orange flavor. It is so easy to make and tastes fantastic.
Sex in the Driveway Drink
The Sex in the Driveway Drink is a twist on the classic Sex on the Beach Cocktail. Instead of cranberry juice, this cocktail recipe uses Blue Curacao. It is quick and easy to make and tastes fantastic.
This drink can be strong in flavor, so you want to stir it after mixing everything.
The drink has a refreshing peach, orange, and lemon-lime flavor. It is a strong drink consistent with ordering a double drink. If you want a lighter drink, you can quickly adapt the amount of vodka you use in the recipe.
I am unsure how this cocktail got its name. I will let you use your imagination to think up a story as to why it is called a Sex in the Driveway drink.
Here is a quick overview of the simple ingredients needed to make an epic Sex in the Driveway Drink! The printable recipe card at the bottom of the post includes specific measurements and step-by-step instructions.
Optional: Lemon Wheel for Garnish, add a cherry for a pop of red
Vodka - You can also use white rum if you prefer the taste. Feel free to lower the amount of vodka used if you want a lighter drink.
Sprite - If you don't have Sprite lemon-lime soda you can also use sparkling water like Lacroix in a citrus flavor. Club soda can be used for soda bubbles but will not have the lemon flavor and sweetness of Sprite.
We think the Highball glass is the best glass for showing off the epic colors of this blue cocktail.
How to make Sex in the Driveway Drink
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Add ice to a highball glass. Add in Peach Schnapps
Make sure you add the alcohol in this order so you get the layered look in your cocktail.
Step 2 - Add in Blue Curacao
Step 3 - Add in Vodka
Step 4 - Top with Sprite
Step 5 - garnish with a lemon wheel and add a paper straw.
You will want to stir it before taking a sip so you don't end up sipping straight peach schnapps or blue curacao.
Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead: We recommend making this layered cocktail to order so you don’t lose the layered effect, which is a fun part of the drink. Carbonated drinks also do not store well once opened.
Making it ahead of time will lose the stunning bright blue color gradient in the drink.
Check out our guidance below on making it pitcher-style for a large group if you don’t mind a non-layered cocktail.
Freezing/How to Freeze:
You can use our Alcoholic Popsicles recipes to turn this drink into boozy popsicles.
Did you know an 11-year-old accidentally made the first popsicle after leaving a soda powder and water mixture outside on a cold night?
You can also use a margarita machine or ice cream maker to turn this into a slushy cocktail.
You can also use white rum instead of vodka if you prefer the taste. Feel free to lower the vodka used if you want a lighter drink.
If you don't have Sprite, you can use sparkling water like LaCroix in a citrus flavor.
Vegetarian Option: This pretty blue cocktail is 100 percent vegetarian!
Vegan Option: Look for vegan peach schnapps and blue curaçao to avoid cross-contamination with animal-derived ingredients.
Gluten-Free: Look for gluten-free labels on the peach schnapps and blue curaçao to avoid cross-contamination with gluten-containing ingredients and ensure this cocktail is safe for a gluten-free diet.
Alcohol-Free Option: Replace the peach schnapps, blue curaçao, and vodka with NA alternatives to make Sex in the Driveway Mocktails.
Make It Spicy: You can add hot sauce or jalapeño slices for adding heat to this fruity drink.
Larger Group/More Servings: You can double or triple this recipe and serve it in a pitcher if you are hosting a party. Make a pitcher with peach schnapps, vodka, and blue curaçao, and have a bottle of Sprite next to it so guests can finish their drinks. It is important not to add the Sprite to the pitcher and finish each drink with soda, so no one gets flat soda.
Sugar-Free: The written recipe contains 12 grams of sugar per serving. Replace the peach schnapps, blue curaçao, and Sprite with sugar-free substitutes to make it sugar-free.
