Dreamsicle Cocktail

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!
