Sex on the Beach
A classic drink to have in your cocktail arsenal. Created during, where else, spring break in Florida. This concoction was the winning original drink in a contest between local bartenders. And don't let the risque name fool you, this one's nothing but sweet.
As the story goes the Rum Runner was invented at a popular bar in the Florida Keys in the 1950s. The bartender had some extra inventory lying around and wanted to make room for new bottles on his shelves. He mixed them all together and the drink was born.
