8 oz lemonade

Overall: 6.7

Preparation: Pour ingredients into collins glass one after another, then add ice, and a lemon slice to garnish.

General Comments:You don't call it "Sex in the Water", obviously. It's "SEEEEEX! IN THE WAAAR-DUH!" in one's best Ian Gillan bellow, a fact which makes this cocktail's name fully two points better than that of its cousin, the unbearably named "Sex on the Beach".

Alas, the brief amusement had by bellowing this drink's name is probably the most fun you'll be having with it.  It's not that it's bad, by any means.  It's sweet and bubbly, and everything works perfectly fine together (though if you're not careful it's easy to overdo the lemonade and drown the other flavours), but it lacks the bite of say, the cranberry juice in a Woo Woo. There's an obvious void here which is just a little bit frustrating.
