Orange Creamsicle Cocktail Recipe
The orange creamsicle cocktail is truly an amazing drink. We have had creamsicles for decades in Canada. The frosty orange crust has always kept that delicious creamy interior all in place on a hot day. I remember eating creamsicles on the beach when I was five, and they really were my mom’s favourite kind of summer treat. As a cocktail, adults can savour the same flavours as they did as a kid. Now it’s just with a bit of a buzz afterwards.
The creamsicle isn’t much different than your standard Screwdriver. Here we start with a vodka (orange flavoured vodka just for that added citrus burst), then add some orange juice. For added sweetness, add in a little triple sec. If you don’t know triple sec, it is a sweet, orange flavoured liqueur. Next, that creamsicle cocktail needs a little fresh cream. If you don’t have cream handy, whole milk can be used as well as an alternative.
Finish the drink off with a dollop of premium vanilla ice cream and enjoy your concoction as if it were a root beer float! Add a spoon, and of course a straw.
