Orange Sunshine

If you loved Orange Creamsicles as a kid or still enjoy them as an adult, you will love this cocktail. 

Serve them up for starters or as a creamy delicious finish to a great night.   Add an orange wedge for a great orange aroma when you sip.  If you choose to do these for dessert, add a dollop of whipped cream to make them more decadent.   


  • 1-1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 2-1/2 oz. vanilla-infused vodka (such as Stoli Vanilla)
  • 2 1/2 cups of orange sherbet
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 dash vanilla extract
  • 2 cups ice

Add all the ingredients in the blender, adding the ice last. Blend until smooth. Serve in a chilled glass of your choice

    Can I drink one for breakfast, Patty? Would that be bad? I love Creamsicles but I've never actually tried the drink version.
