Creamsicle Crush

Catlin and I spent a weekend at the beach a few months ago.  I, being a beer drinker to the core, brought a case of lager and she, being the girly-girl cocktail sort, brought a bottle of whipped cream vodka and some OJ.

I dutifully rolled my eyes when she popped them in the refrigerator.

Sometime the next evening I went to the fridge for a beer and spied the orange juice.  And was broad-sided by a sudden craving for it (which is odd because I don't even really like OJ).  So, I grabbed the jug and got a glass.  And then I thought, "Meh... why not??" and grabbed the whipped cream vodka.  Even while I was mixing my drink I was utterly convinced I would take one sip and turn my nose up.

But y'all.  Y'ALL.  That whipped cream vodka is really good!  I couldn't believe it!  Me?!  Ms. I Don't Like Sweet Drinks??? Ms. Oh Please What Is That Crap Even Made Of???  Ms. Judgey McJudgeface of Countless Women Who Order Neon Colored Fish Bowl Cocktails???

Whatevs.  It was good!

I'd told Mom how impressed with it I was and, lo and behold, guess who had a bottle of it when I went over for Mother's Day today?!  And this is what we made!  It tastes JUST LIKE an orange creamsicle!


Creamsicle Crush
3 ounces Whipped Cream vodka
3 ounces orange juice
2 ounces whole milk or half-and-half
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
1 cup crushed ice
Powdered sugar-rimmed glass*

Add vodka, orange juice, milk, powdered sugar and crushed ice to a cocktail shaker.  Cover shaker tightly and shake vigorously (this froths the drink up).  Pour into prepared glass and serve.  Feel free to mix this to taste (more sugar, less vodka... whatever tastes good to you!).  

*To rim the glass, pour about an 1/8 of an inch of vodka into a small saucer.  Add about 1/2 cup powdered sugar to a another saucer.  Turn a tall glass upside down into the vodka to coat the rim then dip the glass into the sugar, rolling it around a bit until the rim is thoroughly coated.

  3. I've discovered that dipping the rim in a little Karo syrup works great for sugar-rimmed glasses!

    2. Just skip the milk. This vodka is awesome in orange juice all on it's own.

  13. This is my fav...

    Equal parts OJ and Pinnacle Vanilla/Whipped Cream flavored Vodka (really any vanilla vodka but this is particularly vanilla-ish)
    Add a good pour of French Vanilla Creamer (any liquid coffee creamer - Walmart generic brand is pretty good)
    OR
    Any Orange Soda with equal parts Pinnacle Vanilla/Whipped Cream Vodka (Pinnacle is the best combo with soda only)
    Crushed Ice

  15. Use vanilla ice cream instead of the cream
