Remember as a kid eating Orange Creamsicle popsicles? Well, we have created an orange creamsicle martini with the same taste so that you can enjoy the flavor of an orange creamsicle popsicle while at the same time getting your daily intake of vodka. Win-win.
I instantly fell in love with this Orange Creamsicle Martini after creating it. It was creamy with the right amount of orange flavor. The added orange zest on the top was a nice touch.
I used my favorite vanilla vodka from 360 Vodka for it. That brand can be a little hard to find. Another brand I also like is Absolut Vanilia. Some other drinks I really like with vanilla vodka are the key lime martini and the orange mint vanilla vodka cocktail.
Of course, you need to add some half and half to get the drink nice and creamy – just like the inside of an orange creamsicle popsicle.
Speaking of orange creamiscle popsicles, what do you call them? Do you go with orange creamsicle or orange dreamsicle. I’ve heard both although I’ve always referred to them as the first. But I have no problem calling this drink an orange dreamsicle martini if that’s what you want.
We know you will love this creamsicle martini just as much as we do. Now if you’ll excuse. I’m going to go back to sipping my cocktail.
