Orange Creamsicle Float - Make it as a cocktail or a kid-friendly treat!

I have been intending to make this cocktail for a while, so I’m happy to finally bring you the Spiked Creamsicle Float. Of course, it is just as easy to make this sans vodka for kids or anyone who wants an un-spiked version. Just don’t mix up the glasses because you can hardly taste the difference! I love creamsicles, which is actually surprising because I’m not usually a big fan of citrus desserts. I also tend to think vanilla is a bit boring, but maybe combining two meh (in my book) dessert flavors adds up to yum. Whatever the reason, I love tart orange flavor sneaking into my creamy vanilla ice cream. The tastes come together perfectly in this dessert cocktail!

Is there anything to replace the vanilla vodka?

Hi! If you are looking to make it nonalcoholic, you can just leave out the vodka completely. If you only have plain vodka, just use that and add about 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Hope that helps. Thank you!

I DID do the adult one, but they could be dangerous since you can’t even taste the vodka! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

liking the umbrella–nice touch :-) Entertained tonight and served up a candy corn cocktail made with DIY candy corn vodka. So. No room in me for a creamsicle float. Reminds me of the push-up treats we enjoyed as kids. What fun it would be to have spiked ice cream treats for adults!

Hi, Liz! I still haven’t gotten my first candy corn of the year, but I need to make that a priority for tomorrow! I love it that you are so into the candy infused vodka. You were on a spiked popsicle kick for a while, weren’t you? Maybe you could make a grownup pushup!
