Dreamsicle Cocktail

by | Aug 8, 2017

Have you ever consumed something that instantly sparks a memory from your past? That’s what happened when our friends Dana and Anthony came over for drinks one night. I opened the liquor cabinet and said, “What can I make us?” and by happenstance created cocktails with a flavor that took me right back to my childhood and eating orange-and-cream flavored Dreamsicles and Push Ups.

My liquor cabinet consists of all types of alcoholic options: rum, whiskey, bourbon and vodka. My alcohol of choice is vodka and among the flavors I noticed I had Whipped. Whipped vodka tastes like it’s been infused with whipped cream. The only juice I had in the refrigerator was orange juice. For some bubbles, I grabbed the club soda. I mixed equal parts of the orange juice and vodka in a shaker and poured it over the glass of ice and club soda. Then I added an orange slice and said, “Voila!”

After the first sip we all marveled over how good it was and that it tasted like a Dreamsicle. Anthony decided to make a shot version using all equal parts and it was just as scrumptious. Let’s just say it wasn’t long before we needed more Whipped Vodka. Cheers!

Sandi Grigg

Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina, Sandi always dreamed of living on the coast. In her youth, she was always by the water; she was raised tending a big garden and stomping around in the creek. She spent her adolescent days on a Jet Ski or fishing on Lake James, N.C., and she and her friends would camp and hike the Linville Gorge. Attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte she felt like she was getting out of my small-town box and living the city life; at the same time, she was getting a little closer to the ocean. Moving to Wilmington has been a dream come true, and the life she has created has been a blessing. She enjoys kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach, and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth wherever she is. At home, she loves to cook and play with her dogs in the backyard. She also enjoys DIY home improvement endeavors. No outdoor shower, fire pit or flower bed is too big of a job! Being a part of the North Brunswick Magazine and South Brunswick Magazine team has taught Sandi that you really can enjoy your career.
