Creamsicle Cocktail

July  6, 2009
Author Notes

I have a very stocked liquor cabinet, and in the name of using up less desirable items (vanilla vodka much?), I invented this cocktail, which tasted exactly like an alcoholic creamsicle! It's citrusy and sweet, goes down like ice cream and still packs a boozy punch. —Lauren Shockey

  • Serves 1 drink
Ingredients
  • 2 ounces vanilla flavored vodka
  • 2 ounces orange muscat dessert wine (i use quady winery's essensia)
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • orange slices for garnish
  • ice
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Combine the vodka, orange muscat, and Cointreau in a lowball glass and stir. Add ice (preferably one large cube, but smaller cubes are fine, too). If the drink is too strong for your liking, add more orange muscat, or use smaller ice cubes which will melt quickly.
