Orange Creamsicle Cocktail Ingredients

Orange Creamsicle Cocktail raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup SunnyD orange-flavored drink
  • 8 ounces (½ of a pint container or two generous scoops) orange sherbet 
  • 3 ounces whipped cream-flavored vodka
  • ½ ounce of orange curacao liqueur
  • 2 large scoops of vanilla ice cream

For the Garnish

  • Extra creamy squirt whipped topping
  • Orange sanding sugar sprinkles

PRO TIP:

I like to buy single-serve bottles of SunnyD orange drinks. This way, I can use them to make this delicious creamsicle cocktail, or I can send the single-serve bottles of SunnyD with my kids for their school lunches.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

JUICE: You can substitute traditional orange juice; however, you will need to make sure that you get the pulp-free variety. You can also use an orange-flavored soda as an alternate option.

ICE CREAM: If you do not want to buy a separate container of vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet for this delicious drink, you can substitute an orange cream ice cream for all the vanilla and orange sherbet in the recipe. 

VODKA: If you can find whipped cream-flavored vodka, you can substitute plain vanilla vodka in this great recipe. The whipped cream vodka is slightly sweeter than a standard vanilla vodka, so I highly recommend giving it a try if you can find it in your area. Smirnoff and Pinnacle brands make a great version of whipped cream vodka.

How to Make This Orange Creamsicle Cocktail Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

This recipe can easily be doubled or cut in half to fit your serving needs.

STEP ONE: In the container of a blender, add the SunnyD orange drink, orange sherbet, whipped cream vodka, and orange curacao liqueur.

PRO TIP:

If you use either of the substitutions for the SunnyD, I suggest you increase the amount of orange curacao liqueur to 1 ounce.

STEP TWO: Blend for 30 seconds or until frothy and smooth.

STEP THREE: Add a large scoop of vanilla ice cream to the bottom of each glass.

PRO TIP:

You will get between 1 to 1½ cups of liquid to pour over the top of your vanilla ice cream in the glasses. You will need a stemless wine glass that holds at least 2 cups in volume to allow for the garnish of squirt whipped topping.

STEP FOUR: Pour the orange creamsicle drink evenly between the two glasses.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE/FREEZER: This delicious orange creamsicle cocktail is best served immediately and will not keep in the fridge or freezer for any length of time.

With the same creamy orange flavors as the classic popsicle but with an adult spin, this cocktail is a delicious choice year-round. Creamy and sweet, all you need to do is add the ingredients to a blender, and you’ll be sipping before you know it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does it matter what brand of liquor I use for this delicious cocktail?

Any brand you would enjoy sipping on its own would be the perfect choice for this sweet cocktail recipe.

Can I use regular vodka if I can’t find whipped cream vodka?

For this bright orange cocktail, we highly recommend trying to find either whipped cream or vanilla vodka for the added sweetness. Regular vodka will work in a pinch if necessary for your orange creamsicle frozen cocktail.

Can I store this frozen orange creamsicle cocktail in the fridge?

This orange creamsicle cocktail drink will not keep in the fridge for any length of time. The ice cream will melt, and you will not have the same creamy texture that you want.
