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.
The Sex in the Driveway is also a strong drink, but because there’s so much soda in it, it takes a while to drink it. That means just one cocktail can be very satisfying.
That makes this a refreshing and somewhat hydrating cocktail. Between the citrus notes and the bubbly Sprite, it has a bracing feel that’s especially welcome on a hot day.
Try this one next time you’re poolside or barbecuing. This drink is perfect for barbecues 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. That makes it easy to enjoy with almost anything, even heavy and greasy dishes.
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. Then each refill is just a matter of pouring in roughly equal amounts of from the pitcher and from a bottle of soda.
And actually, you can mix the Sprite in the pitcher too, as long as you’re keeping it in the fridge and serving it within a few hours. Any longer than that, and it might go flat.
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).
However you choose to make this one, it’s a hard drink to dislike. Unless the idea of a citrus-peach soda doesn’t appeal to you, you can expect to enjoy this drink.
If you like this drink, check out the Hard Ocean Water, which is an alcoholic version of the Ocean Water drink from Sonic. It blends Blue Curacao with coconut vodka and Sprite.
