Creamsicle

Day 50


Creamsicle
4 shots out of 5



Nothing like the word creamsicle to make me smile.  It always reminds me of those ice cream bars we used to eat as kids, Tutti Fruitys, 50/50 bars or creamsicles, whatever you may have called them, they were just good!

One of my best friends made this cocktail on New Years Eve and I never got a chance to try it.  I also got a request from one of my readers, Sandi, as an idea of a cocktail for one of my 366 cocktails I will be making.  In the one Sandi had initially heard about you would use orange juice in stead of orange soda.  Since orange soda was the ingredient used on New Years Eve, I decided to give that one a try, and maybe save the other for another night.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I took the basic recipe and added whipped cream on top for looks and for a little extra creamy flavor.  I am enjoying this cocktail a lot this evening!  Thank You Sandi for your recipe and I hope you try one soon!  

Here is the recipe for a Creamsicle:

  • 2 shots whipped cream vodka
  • 2 shots orange soda
  • whipped cream
In a shaker, add ice, whipped cream vodka and orange soda.  Shake and strain into a glass and squirt a little whipped cream on top and enjoy!

Cheers to a taste of childhood!!  OH, and I added a Table of Contents to my blog.  Under it is a list of my cocktails I've made so far in Alphabetical order.  You can click on the link on the left side bar below my slideshow of cocktails to get to it.
