The original Sex on the Beach cocktail emerged from an era when vodka-based, sweet, and fruity libations ruled every beach and hotel bar around.
Copperwing Distillery's "vodskey" brings a buttery, earthy funk with a citrus nose into an updated version, that they call Screw in the Shoe. When served in the cocktail room it's kegged and slightly carbonated, lending balance and effervescence to this tropical update.
- 1 ½ oz Copperwing Vodskey
- 1 oz Simple syrup
- 1 oz Peach puree
- ½ oz Orange juice
- ¼ oz lemon juice
- 2 dashes Cranberry Bitters
- 2-3 drops Big Watt Coriander Bitters
In an ice-filled Collins glass, combine Vodskey and fruit juices. Top with coriander and cranberry bitters, and agitate gently to create the ombre color effect. Mist with atomized coriander bitters, if desired.
Copperwing Distillery is a neighborhood craft distillery in St. Louis Park, MN. As of April 2017 light whiskey, vodka, and vodskey are served in the cocktail room.
