Like a liquid creamsicle popsicle, this is the adult version of an orange dreamsicle!
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.
If you want another orange cocktail, try our Earl of Orange!
- 2 oz vodka
- 4 oz freshly squeezed orange juice
- 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.
This would be great with orange vodka or vanilla vodka as well!
