One of Mr. Nom’s favorite childhood treats was the orange dreamsicle, that wonderful icy treat that combined orange popsicle with creamy vanilla ice cream that made for a perfect if somewhat sticky summer treat. This cocktail takes that wonderful treat and puts an adult spin on it, plus the drink is significantly less sticky! If you skip the vodka, it makes a drink similar to an Orange Julius, so this could be a nice “kid’s cocktail as well!  This drink was a great dessert or perfect to beat the heat on a warm summer night.

Orange Dreamsicle Cocktail

  • 2 oz vodka (would be great with orange or vanilla vodka, as well!)
  • 4 oz orange juice (we juiced clementines for ours)
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 2 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 oz cream or half and half
  • club soda or sparkling water

In a Collins glass, fill half with ice. Add vodka, orange juice, simple syrup, vanilla extract and half and half. Stir until mixed well, top with club soda. Enjoy!
