Skinny Creamsicle Cocktail

We're giving your favorite childhood ice cream treat a grown-up twist with today's Skinny Creamsicle Cocktail!


Like many of our favorite mixology experiments, this creation came about through pure luck. I was at home, craving a "fancy" drink, but didn't want to run out to the store to buy any specialty liqueurs (because, let's face it, my liquor cabinet is already a bit...cozy...as it is!). Plus, with my big move coming up, the responsible thing to do is to lighten my moving boxes by polishing off some of those heavy liquor bottles, of course :)

After scouring the shelf, I settled on my trusty bottle of cake vodka and was about to enjoy it by itself on the rocks, when T reached into the fridge and pulled out the game-changer...a bottle of orange seltzer! And thus, a beautiful (and skinny!) spin on a nostalgic treat was born.

Skinny Creamsicle Cocktail

Ingredients (for a 6 oz. cocktail)
* 4 oz. cake vodka
* 2 oz. orange seltzer
* Orange slice and wedge

Instructions
* Shake cake vodka and orange seltzer over ice. Pour in a martini glass (and for an extra frosty touch, freeze the martini glass prior to serving).

* Garnish with an orange wedge and float an orange slice on top of the cocktail.


Mmm...sweet enough to satisfy a dessert craving, yet citrus-y enough for brunch! Which desserts would you like to see receive the cocktail treatment?
