Creamsicle Drinks for a Hot Summer Day
As in my last two posts, I'm still thinking about drinks to help cool us down. This recipe for a Creamsicle Cocktail is an adult beverage, but following this recipe is an alcohol-free version so everyone can enjoy the orange and vanilla goodness! This is one bet you can't lose.
In a blender, add 1/2 cup of ice, 1 oz of Light Rum, 1/2 oz of Triple Sec, 1/2 oz of Vanilla Liqueur. Next add 1/2 scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream and 1/2 scoop of Orange Sherbet. If you like a more creamy taste, use a little more ice cream than sherbet; if you like a stronger orange flavor, add more sherbet than ice cream. You can also thin this drink by adding either Milk or Orange Juice. Serve with a spoon or garnish with a popsicle stick.
Enjoy responsibly with friends!
And for those who prefer their drinks alcohol-free:
1 cup vanilla ice cream, softened
1 cup orange sherbet, softened
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup orange juice
2 orange slices for garnish, optional
