This Sex In The Woods cocktail uses moonshine instead of vodka

Don’t everyone get crazy on me now. I’m not really saying that everyone should go and have sex in the woods. Literally.

It’s just a drink. And a damn good one I might add.

Ordering some of these drinks in your 20’s is pretty common, right? I remember ordering sweeter drinks, too when I was younger.

Now, I honestly couldn’t have more than one in a night. But these cocktails are really fun for tailgating or picnics or just a BBQ in your backyard, so let’s give them a try!

How Is This Different Than A Sex On The Beach Cocktail?

The ingredients for the traditional drink are typically vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry juice and orange juice. The drink is also typically served in a highball glass over crushed ice.

But we’ve taken those same ingredients and used moonshine instead of vodka…and I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it!

It’s a great drink though, definitely a classic. But it wouldn’t be my drink of choice these days now that I’m in my 40’s. Typically sweet drinks of any kind aren’t really something I’d order, but I can’t say that I don’t like the taste of them.


It’s still a sweet drink, but not overly sweet. It’s still a tasty drink…and it will still knock you on your a**. So please, enjoy these Sex in the Woods cocktails with a little sense.

I have enough people cursing my name out the morning after a party.

Of course commercial moonshine is made now in nice, clean shiny distilleries. But it’s still made where it originated, deep in the woods. I used to think it all tasted the same until a friend of mine introduced me to different kinds of moonshine that are produced today…

What Type Of Moonshine Should I Buy?

At my liquor store there is literally an entire shelf of moonshine these days. From fruity flavored ones to plain varieties, inexpensive to the more expensive bottles.

Because moonshine isn’t what it used to be, a cheap, made in the woods kind of “shine”. You can also get pretty fancy these days with different types of moonshine and moonshine cocktails!

So grab your favorite bottle, the legal kind, and make up a few of these cocktails, I think you’re going to love them!

Can You Swap Out The Moonshine In This Recipe?

You can use vodka if you prefer not to buy moonshine, but then it would really be a Sex On The Beach! Remember this recipe is Not Sex On The Beach – Sex In The Woods!

So yes, you can use vodka instead but let’s have some fun with this one. Grab a bottle of moonshine and give it a try!

Sliced blood oranges or regular oranges will make a great garnish in this drink and on the side…plus it’ll give you a little something to snack on once this cocktail starts to kick in!
