Funeral for Sex on the Beach
“I am sure that every bartender in the world would love to see certain cocktails disappear from the bar,” said Simon Ford, Director of Trade Outreach and Brand Education for Pernod-Ricard. “This year the voters have decided that the Sex on the Beach should be buried. I guess is an 80′s drink and its time has come, maybe next year we can resurrect it but for now the bartenders have spoken,”
It is the mission of Tales of the Cocktail® to promote the best of the cocktail community, and in turn to shake a finger at some of the world’s worst drinks. Tales of the Cocktail® got into the cocktail-killing business three years ago with the burial of the Appletini. At the 2009 festival, attendees danced down Royal Street, led by a brass band, to take the Red-Headed Slut to her grave.
“Parachute Pants, Jersey Shore and Sex-on-the-Beach, three thing that our Great-Grandchildren
will never understand. The least we can do is try and correct our mistakes; history will remember
us all in a better light, for doing our part, to right, such serious wrongs, of the past,” said Paul G.
Tuennerman, Chief Business Officer for Tales of the Cocktail.
