Creamy and delicious with notes of vanilla and orange this Creamsicle Cocktail will bring you back to your childhood with every sip.
I decided a few days ago I was going to do a cocktail every week (or a mocktail if you prefer those). It's almost summer. It's hot. (It is 85 degrees in my house and we don't have our window air conditioners in yet). And when Friday rolls around I just need something cool to sip on.
Last Friday my drink of the week was this Frozen Orange Creamsicle. It does taste just like a creamsicle. My husband saw me making it and said "There is no way that is going to taste like a creamsicle". But I proved him wrong. He took one sip and his eyebrows went up. "It does taste like a creamsicle". And I didn't even smirk. At least I tried not to.
As I write this it is a Friday. And I am currently sipping a Frozen Raspberry Cheesecake that is spiked with vodka just like this. It is incredible.
The vodka is optional. You can make any of my keto cocktails without it if you prefer.
4 oz orange seltzer
2 tablespoon sweetener
2 oz half and half or 2 tablespoon heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 drops orange oil or 1 teaspoon orange extract
8 ice cubes
pinch of xanthan gum (optional, helps to stop the drink from separating)
2 oz vodka (optional, if omitting you can add more seltzer)
a couple drops of red and yellow food coloring (optional)
Directions: Blend all the ingredients until smooth.
