Ken brought home some creamsicle ice cream for Amber the other day and it reminded me of a drink I used to have when we were in Sicamous for the summer. It was so good and I haven’t had it in so long. So we went about reinventing a creamsicle cocktail and it turned out great. You can be sipping these all summer long!! Here is another cocktail that will use up your simple syrup.
1/2 oz. orange vodka
1/2 oz. triple sec
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. simple syrup
1 oz. cream, half and half
3 drops red food colouring and 6 drops yellow (optional)
For the simple syrup mix 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar and heat until sugar is dissolved. Let cool and refrigerate.
Fill a shaker half up with ice. Shake all ingredients well and strain into a martini glass. Yummy!!
