I've discovered a benefit....when you're mixing alcohol and such to match a mental flavor....well, let's just say, things get a little fun!
Believe it or not, I purchased some orange liqueur for a bread recipe. While I was at the store, Cocktail Puppy popped into my mind and I realized I had yet to post a cocktail recipe of sorts. Well, one thing lead to another and I found myself purchasing, tequila, orange juice, heavy whipping cream and creme soda.
I brought it all home, and started mixing. Then I thought...hmm, someone MUST have tried this before, right? I mean...Dreamsicles, Creamsicles....these are very popular childhood desserts. And yes...there are recipes for an alcohol beverage to resemble the ever so popular popsicles. But they weren't quite the same. So....here's my version of an adult Creamsicle. It's orange, creamy, vanilla-ish...and it will kick your butt....in such a good way.
(this will make enough for about 4 - 6 cocktails...or more. Depends on how small your glass is)
12 oz orange concentrate (no pulp, defrosted)
12 oz orange liqueur (I used Patron Citronge)
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
6 oz tequila
12 oz cream soda
More Cream Soda to top off the glass
Combine the orange concentrate, orange liqueur, whipping cream and tequila...mix well. Add the 12 oz of cream soda and stir. Serve your guests
or just yourself and top off the glass with a bit (1 or 2 oz) more of the cream soda.
