Very good. I used Smirnoff citrus vodka, as that was all I had on hand. I also used fresh squeezed orange juice. Just like a creamsicle, only all grown up. Delicious. NOTE: I shop mostly at Fred Meyer/Kroger and they also carry their own brand of fat free half-n-half.-01 Feb 2009

Before I could decide whether or not I liked this, it was gone! And that happened quickly. Guess that speaks volumes. Can't say that this tastes like a Creamsicle, but it was good. At first it tasted a bit "boozy" to me but after the first few sips that wasn't an issue. I guess you get used to it. It's creamy and smooth, and just a little orange-y. I think if I have this again I'd have Hubs do something to make it even orangier. He used regular half-and-half but beyond that, stuck to the recipe as written - equal parts of all ingredients. He even liked it, and he's strictly a classic gin martini kinda guy!-28 Jul 2010

Land O' Lakes makes the fat-free half and half in this recipe but I'm not sure if it's available everywhere. If you can't find the fat-free version, it's also just as good with regular half and half or cream, just more calories. Also, I would suggest this drink not be made in batches. The cream will separate a bit and make it less visually appealing after it's been sitting for awhile. Best to make them as you're drinking them even if you're serving more than one. Also, you can double the orange juice for more of a cocktail and less of a martini if you want to go a little lighter on the alcohol. Lastly, I almost always use Simply Orange or fresh squeezed orange juice for this recipe. It really does make a difference in the flavor vs. a reconstituted O.J. Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I have. :D-05 Feb 2009

Creamsicle Martini Creamsicle Martini is an alcoholic cocktail made with Galliano and Triple Sec, is super creamy and tastes just like your childhood favorite dessert. My grandparents used to live down the shore or if you’re not from NJ, they lived near the beach. This was great when I was younger because my friends and I would go down for the day to catch some rays then head over to their house for showers, dinner, cards and some cocktails. I’ll never forget this one time while my girlfriend and I were sitting at the table and their coo coo clock struck 5 o’clock. My grandmother came out with a funny saying then said “Well, I guess we can have a cocktail now!” and proceeding to make a concoction called a Golden Dream. We had never tried it before, but it was sweet, creamy and tasted just like creamsicle ice cream. It’s 30 years later and I haven’t had it since. That is until I was looking at a food holiday calendar and realized that next week is National Creamsicle Day. All of the memories came back from that fun day and even though I couldn’t remember the name of the drink, I remembered what she put in it. I looked online and searched the ingredients, found the actual name of the drink then made it. It was horribly strong and not like I remembered. In fact, it didn’t taste much like a creamsicle at all. After several attempts, I was able to replicate the drink the way I remembered it by using the right proportions of Galliano, Triple Sec, orange juice and milk. Orange Creamcicle Martini

TGIF! Its been a short work week this week, but its felt just as long as any. If you are feeling the same way, maybe one of these will help this evening… No work tomorrow! For most of us anyways.

These martini’s taste exactly like an orange creamcicle! And who doesn’t like those? Orange flavored ice on the outside and a creamy filling on the inside. Remember those?!

Debbie found whipped cream flavored vodka! I often amazed at the flavors that they come up with for vodka. Whoever “they” are… But the vodka she found made this drink possible. Its delicious, but too sweet to use all on its own. In our opinion, using half whipped cream vodka and half regular vodka works great. We also prefer orange juice without pulp for this, and hey, if you can make fresh orange juice, then I think it would be even better.

We like to add a splash of soda to this drink, but that’s totally optional. We first tried it without and then with the soda and both of us preferred the martini with the soda. But, of course, its up to you!

I have to admit, that todays post feels difficult to write… As in the words aren’t coming so easy. Im preoccupied with whats going on in my family right now and its giving me some writers block.

Last week Kevin got a call from his sister Lisa that their step-mom, Teri, was in cardiac arrest and they didn’t think she was going to make it. Such a shocking phone call! So we packed in 5 mins and jumped in the truck heading to Williams Lake where she lives with Kevins dad, Harry. We were re-routed to Kelowna as they got her stabilized and deemed her able to make the trip via air ambulance to a more equipped hospital. We stayed there till Saturday morning, each day hoping for some good news and some improvement in her health. Unfortunately, there was none and after a week and a bit of fighting and everyone willing her to live, she passed away last night. Its an incredibly sad and difficult time for everyone that loves Teri.

I have to say that even in such a difficult time, I was warmed by how Kevins family pulled together at a moments notice to support his dad and each other. There was a group of 9 of us that stayed in Kelowna last week and it was so nice to see everyone band together. Kevin went back to Kelowna yesterday to be with his dad and I cant stop thinking about the two of them and the rest of their family who went there quickly for Teri’s last moments.

I would love to tell her how much love there is around her, but my guess is that she knows.

I hope you all have a good weekend. Kiss and hug the ones you love tight!

A few day trips, a long weekend planned and of course some summer camps for both. Our summer camps are all sports based, because that&rsquos what they like. And fortunately there&rsquos enough going on in our area to keep them busy most of the summer.

But then I do want to leave some down time, some days where we just have nothing to do. Days that they can run the yards with their friends, or ride bikes down at the park. Or really, just sit in their rooms for a few hours on their iPads. I mean we buy our kids these electronics and then we&rsquore constantly taking them away or saying they can&rsquot play them&hellipthere&rsquos a time and a place and a low key summer day is definitely that time and place in my opinion.

Low key days for the kids also mean a low key day for the parents. Let&rsquos face it, unless your kids are old enough to drive we are the ones driving them back and forth from camp or their friends house or to whatever activity they have going on.

That can be exhausting too.

So in comes this Orange Blossom Vodka Martini. Happy hour can happen most every day, people. Take advantage of it.

It doesn&rsquot have to be a big party with tons of food &ndash it can be you and yourself alone with a bag of chips out on the deck. Usually when I start that idea people tend to follow me out, so I end up with enough company.

This Orange Blossom Vodka Martini is perfect for sipping on a warm summer day. The flavors of orange and vanilla are there but it&rsquos not a sweet martini. Good chilled vodka is a must have &ndash along with good quality Orange Blossom Water from Nielsen-Massey. I also used Nielsen-Massey&rsquos Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract , if you&rsquove never tried using extracts in your cocktails, there&rsquos a whole world of recipes out there to check out, they really can make a big difference in the flavor of your drink.

They make their Orange Blossom water by distilling the blossoms of the bitter orange tree and it is a perfect addition to desserts, especially with chocolate or other citrus flavors.

But today, it&rsquos a martini. I&rsquom sure you&rsquove all heard of a Lemon Drop martini? It has a place, especially when I was younger I guess but it&rsquos a really sweet, lemon flavored martini that&rsquos really popular. This is my twist on that but with orange flavor &ndash and a little more upscale, so you need to really like martinis for this one.

Real martinis I mean. You know like the James Bond kind.

All you need is mandarin orange vodka, fresh orange juice, the Orange Blossom Water and a splash of the vanilla extract and a few ice cubes.

Those are just for shaking this chilled martini up, no ice in the actual cocktail here.

And vanilla beans for garnish. I really like these beans from Nielsen-Massey for this drink, their Mexican Vanilla Beans&hellipthe beans aren&rsquot in the drink, but with each sip you get the scent of that bean and it&rsquos pretty awesome.

No simple syrups or extra sweeteners for this one, the fresh orange flavor is all you need.

Shake all those ingredients up in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, really well, you want those little ice crystals going all through your cocktail when you take that first sip&hellip

A classic, lightly flavored martini that&rsquos perfect for unwinding on a summer day.

Let&rsquos face it, you&rsquove had a busy day too keeping your kids busy all day right? It&rsquos pretty darn tiring, you deserve a cocktail!

It was a typical evening with friends. I put out a spread of goodies to nibble on for happy hour. There are choices of beverages wine and whatever I know our guests prefer.

I’m standing there asking what they would like to drink. Then suddenly my husband asks if they wanted an Orange Creamsicle Cocktail.

I had no idea that was coming. I was so surprised. A typical evening turned not so typical in an instant.

It’s a cocktail my husband created. Yep, he came up with the mixture all on his own.

He later told me he’s done the same thing with different flavors like peach and grape.

On a few occasions I’ve seen a glass in the sink in the morning that I thought was from him drinking milk. Now I know it wasn’t milk.

How could I have missed his cocktails? Well, he makes one when he gets home after an evening shift. I’m already in bed and snoozing away. Why not make one for me at other times?

Well, there’s really no reason to because I prefer wine, vodka martini, or a cocktail that isn’t overly sweet. And he knows I don’t care for a classic Creamsicle frozen treat, orange or otherwise.

So how is the Orange Creamsicle Cocktail? It must be good.

There are very few things my husband will make on his own. You can count them on one hand. Plus it’s extremely rare he whips up a cocktail for friends.

He wouldn’t do that unless he was sure they would like it.

Did they? Yes, they certainly did. All said it was like sipping on an orange creamsicle.

How about some goodies to go with the cocktail? The same evening is when I served Candied Jalapeño Cream Cheese Crostini.

You can make Herb and Citrus Marinated Olives for something salty to go with the sweet drink.

Either Sriracha Spiced Peanuts or Curried Cashews are great for those who like nuts. Cheers!

While you do mix this up in a cocktail shaker, you don’t want to shake this orange creamsicle drink or you’ll end up with a fizzy foamy mess. Also, the carbonation in the orange soda dictates that you put the ice in first and then add the liquid.

Orange Creamsicle Cocktail Ingredient Notes

This orange creamsicle cocktail is much sweeter than a cranberry bourbon cocktail and just as simple as a lime rickey. It takes about 60 seconds to whip one up and it’s every bit as decadently delicious as the orange creamsicle you remember from your childhood. It goes down fast and smooth.

Vodka – Instead of making this drink with vanilla vodka, which is a little easier to find in the stores, I opt for the whipped cream version.I don’t like buying ingredients for just one recipe, then scratching my head trying to come up with other ways to use the leftovers.

  • If you’re wondering how to make the most of that big bottle of whipped cream vodka, try using it instead of Bailey’s the next time you’re “spicing” up your iced coffee.

Orange – I also make this drink with orange soda instead of orange juice or juice concentrate. This particular choice for me is all about the bubbles and the fizziness it adds to the cocktail.

  • Make sure you’re using a sweetened orange soda too, like Sunkist or Fanta, not sparkling water like La Croix or San Pellegrino. Otherwise, you’ll need some simple syrup to sweeten the mix.

Garnish – You can rim the glass with orange sugar sprinkles, granulated sugar infused with orange zest or vanilla beans, or sprinkle orange Jimmies (large capsule-shaped sprinkles) on top of the Reddi-Wip.

  • A little mint sprig adds some color, though we all know everyone’s going to be drinking around it. LOL.
  • By the way, even though it’s hard to top the fun of a spray-able can of whipped cream, I do prefer the Reddi-Wip flavor for topping our liquid creamsicles rather than a tub-variety of whipped topping.

Tools to Make

Enjoying this orange creamsicle drink is an indulgent treat that rivals the fondest childhood memories and you don’t need any complicated tools. If your whipping up adult beverages, you’ve probably already got a cocktail shaker with a strainer and the strainer is really the only must-have.

How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?

This is one of those ‘make on the spot’ drinks because it calls for orange soda instead of juice. I think it makes it taste more like the original ice cream on a stick. BUT it can’t sit around because the soda will go flat.

Can You Freeze This?

Unfortunately, this creamsicle drink can not be frozen. Trust me, you’re gonna’ want to drink this baby as soon as you taste it so you can have another!

Creamsicle Cocktail Make Ahead Tips

If you’re wanting to serve this yummy creamsicle cocktail at your next get together, there are a couple of things you can do to speed things along.

You can pre-mix equal parts of the two vodkas and have those ready for when guests arrive. If you’re serving a big crowd you can also have a buddy do the Redi Whip topping and serving.

Serving Recommendations

If you’re not quite up for orange creamsicle cookies and Hippie Juice, this drink is really simple and decadent. It’s great for summer barbecues and warm-weather holidays, like Independence Day. Of course, sometimes I like to whip one of these up for dessert.

Original Orange Julius Recipe

Orange Julius is one of those drinks that bring so many childhood memories into my mind. It is the drink that my siblings and I would come home to drink every day after school.

The habit has carried on and I still prepare it and drink it now. It is very healthy and easy to make. It takes only five minutes to create this creamy, refreshing, delicious, and sweet drink.

What Is Orange Julius?

Orange Julius is a 5-ingredient orange drink recipe that is easy to make. It is a sublime refreshing drink that you can make quickly at home and everyone will love it.

What makes it different from the normal orange juice is that it is creamy, frothy and more flavorful which makes it really satisfying to drink.

History of Orange Julius

The famous orange Julius drink was first made by Julius Freed in 1926 in Los Angeles, California in the United States of America.

In the beginning, the sales were very modest and reached about 20 dollars a day. Later on, in 1929, Freed’s real estate broker, Bill Hamlin, has suggested a mixture that is less acidic which made it easier for his stomach to digest.

Eventually, Freed made this mixture which made the drink creamier and frothier and started selling it to the public. The sales have gone up from 20 dollars a day to 100 dollars a day.

The beverage has expanded more during the 1950s and 1960s as it started being sold on many shopping malls and county fairs.

The name of Orange Julius came from the way people used to order the drink while waiting in line by saying “give me an orange, Julius!” Currently, the Orange Julius chain has been bought and is run by Dairy Queen where you will most likely find it served in their restaurants.

How to Make Orange Julius?

The way to make an Orange Julius is very simple, easy and doesn’t require lots of ingredients.

These are the following ingredients that you will need: Orange juice concentrate, water, milk, vanilla, powdered sugar and ice cubes.

You put everything together in the blender and you mix and voilà! You can drink your homemade orange Julius now.

Orange Julius Variations

You can always get creative when it comes to making drinks that are made have an orange flavor and this is also the case with Orange Julius.

Here are some few variations that you can use to switch a little bit from the classical orange Julius flavor.

Dairy-free coconut orange:

If you want a dairy-free beverage then the task is easy. Use coconut milk instead of dairy milk.

You might even like it better than the original one as coconut adds such a tropical and fresh taste to the drink.

Strawberry orange:

Strawberries work like a charm with almost any juice or smoothie.

Throw some fresh or frozen strawberries into the blender with all of the other ingredients and mix together.

How To Make RumChata Creamsicle Chamapgne

Pour some orange juice in the bottom of a champagne flute and then top that off with champagne or prosecco.

Now load it up with some RumChata whipped cream&hellip

And a nice orange twist for garnish.

You are going to have to play bartender with this one though, or give the job to someone who wants it while you&rsquore cooking. But like I said they couldn&rsquot be easier to make. And for a bonus &ndash you can make the RumChata Cream ahead of time so it&rsquos really all about the assembly when it&rsquos time to party! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I used 2% milk, though you can also use whole or skim milk with equally delicious results.

If you don't have orange juice concentrate (or aren't into buying it), Iɽ suggest freezing fresh orange juice into cubes (or in an 8x8-inch pan, then break it into chunks). Without that added iciness, the overall texture of the drink will change dramatically, and adding more ice in the end just doesn't work. (You end up with a more-soupy, less-flavored version of the original.)

Love buffalo wings? Get that same hot, zippy flavor in everything from deviled eggs to enchiladas. And of course: wings.

This iconic whiskey is a "Jack of all trades" when it comes to cooking. Toss it in some pasta, as a savory dipping sauce, and even bake it into something sweet.

Ah, the unassuming envelope of onion soup mix . It's more than just for onion soup (or dip). It adds tremendous flavor (and convenience) in all these recipes.
