Martini Monday: Orange Creamsicle Martini

067

Sometimes, I dream of childhood days of yore. Especially when things like hard-hitting tax bills come around. Other times, I relish in being an adult. Like when I can have my favorite childhood ice cream treat in an alcoholic non-brain-freeze-inducing form.

This martini is really easy to sip. Maybe a little too easy. But it isn’t overly sweet. If you want it stiffer, reduce the OJ. I just happened to have a small can on hand so the amount we used was purely a convenience factor. We also used Pinnacle Whipped Vodka (after hearing rave reviews) and I must say, it is quite delicious. (They also have orange whipped vodka but I went with the standard for more variety.)

{What? You don’t drink martini’s in your pajamas?}

An alternative would be vanilla vodka but that isn’t as much fun. And for you dairy-lovers, feel free to add a splash of half and half to give it a more buttery texture.

Orange Creamsicle Martini

For two very large martinis…

4 oz Pinnacle whipped vodka
2 oz Triple Sec
5.5 oz can Orange Juice
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Give it a few good shakes and pour into two martini glasses. Or just one really big glass if you don’t want to share.

Cheers, friends!

  6. I always drink Martini’s in my jammies!

  7. I’m not a huge drinker but I would make an exception for this 😀 I have tried that vodka and loved it but didn’t really know what to do with it rather than just add it to straight o.j… I like this slight twist on that 🙂

  8. Hooray for Martini Monday and everyone should drink martinis in their jammies!
