How to Make Orange Creamsicle Cocktails

Step 2: Add the cream of coconut.
Step 3: Add orange juice and shake until the ingredients are well mixed and chilled.
Step 4: Add ice to your cocktail glass (a mason jar would be great as well). Pour the drink over the ice and garnish with whipped cream and an orange slice or wedge.
Optional: top the whipped cream with a little bit of fresh orange zest and add a fun straw!
Tips & Tricks
- Cocktail recipes like this one taste best when served icy cold and thoroughly mixed. For best results, be sure to shake it well and serve it right out of the shaker.
- You can omit the vodka entirely for a non-alcoholic version of this drink – which you might need if you make these in front of the kids. They’ll probably want to get in on the creamsicle fun too, and this version tastes almost as good as the adult version!
- Make this a frozen cocktail by blending orange juice, cream of coconut, and vodka in the blender. Then add a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream, orange sherbet, or a little of both! Adding ice makes the consistency similar to a frozen margarita. Leave out the ice if you prefer the creamy texture of a milkshake. (You can make this kid-friendly Creamsicle Milkshake for the little ones).
- Planning a pool day? Mix up a batch of these, pour them into a popsicle mold and freeze overnight. Voila…now you have a boozy orange popsicle to enjoy poolside!
Sure! If you can’t find whipped cream flavored vodka, you can substitute vanilla vodka instead. It’s generally a little easier to find and will still give your drink the same delicious creamsicle flavor.
