We all loved them as kids, those orange juice and ice cream treats we chased the Good Humor man for. Those Creamsicles® are an ice cream icon.
You might also remember there were Dreamsicles® and, in case you're wondering, the difference between the two is hinted at in the names. Creamsicles® have an ice cream center while Dreamsicles® had an ice milk center.
I seem to remember raspberry as well as orange, but the orange was always my favorite. That means, of course, that I had to turn it into a cocktail.
1/2 Oz. Orange Vodka
1/2 Oz. Grand Mariner
1 Oz. Fresh Orange Juice
1 Oz. Heavy Cream
Garnish rim with orange sugar crystals.
Shake ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker then strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve with a popsicle stick as a swizzle stick.
