Creamsicle Martini

I'll let you in on a little known fact about me...I don't drink soda.  It's not that I don't like it, I do...especially if it is an ice cold Diet Cherry Coke or Mug Root Beer...but back in my teenage years I swore it off thinking it would help me in my weight loss endeavors.  Over the years I have gone back and forth with the soda thing, but in general I have found it is something I don't mind living without and therefore I do...  Call me mad, call me crazy, call me whatever you want...this is just a quirk about me you'll have to accept if we are going to get along.

So what does this have to do with martinis...well beside the fact that martinis are not something that I would be willing live without...I have a little story for you...

Last year I was introduced to Whipped Cream Vodka.  The person who told me about it suggested it be mixed with orange soda or root beer.  I did try it, but I found it to be way to sweet for me.  So recently I decided to play with the idea a bit and came up with my version of a Creamsicle Martini.


Bring to the Party:
2 oz Orange Juice, 2 oz Whipped Cream Vodka
Shake Together Vigorously

Pour into Martini Glass, Serve & Enjoy!
Easy, Peasy, Lemon Orange Squeezy!

Makes 1 Luscious Martini

  1. Greetings. This is my first time on your blog, but you have a terrific one. I am always on the look out for new blogs, new ideas. I especially appreciate all the details you do, so many photos makes it seem like anyone can replicate the recipe!

    I am asking, would you please consider posting a few of your favorite recipes on erecipecards.com
    http://erecipecards.com/

    It is a tool for bloggers to see and to be seen. Your posts would fit in perfectly.

    in addition, all photos, recipe titles as well as your blog name would link directly back to your blog. Thus giving you new attention and potentially new readers.

    Or, if you just want to take a look at a lot of fellow food bloggers all in one place. A great learning experience to get ideas about how to establish your own blogging voice!


    Please take a look. If you have any ideas or questions, please do not hesitate to write
