The Sex in the Driveway cocktail is a variation on the Sex on the Beach recipe. The main difference is the stunning blue color and the loss of cranberry juice. It’s very much a blend of peach, orange and lemon-lime.
This drink is definitely on the sweeter side, but the Sprite adds a nice tartness to it. It’s also a strong drink, but because there’s so much soda in it, it takes a while to drink it. That makes this a refreshing and somewhat hydrating cocktail.
Try this one next time you’re poolside or barbecuing. This drink is perfect for barbecuing, because it has a light feel that seems to cut through greasy and heavy foods. It goes well with lots of foods because the flavor is mainly citrus and peach. Try it with this Steak ‘n Sheak Frisco Melts Copycat recipe from Jam Hands. It’s a savory combination of hamburger beef, cheese and onions, and those flavors will pair very nicely with this cocktail.
It’s a great choice for parties because there’s no shaking or mixing – you can even pre-mix a pitcher of everything but the Sprite so that each refill is just a matter of pouring in roughly equal amounts of from the pitcher and from a bottle of soda.
If you don’t like Sprite, or you want to make a little more “upscale” version of this drink, you could substitute lemon-lime sparkling water (or a combination of lemon and lime, depending on the brand you choose). You could also use plain sparkling water with a good squeeze of lemon and lime juice – half of each, if they’re average sized.
