The Vanilla Creamsicle uses milk as a mixer. Therefore, you may be tempted to argue that it’s a health drink. You would be wrong. This drink contains ridiculous amounts of alcohol – four and a half ounces, to be precise. That ranks it up there with the Zombie. (You can weaken this one for those times when you want the taste of it but might not want to be bombed completely out of your head: just keep the liqueurs in equal proportions to each other and use more milk.)
The Vanilla Creamsicle is a favorite with younger drinkers, especially college kids. It’s also a “candy” drink, not unlike Skittles Vodka – except way easier to make. Basically, it’s the kind of drink kids get sick on in dorm rooms. But those of you who are not kids in dorm rooms should not let that stop you.
- 1 1/2 ounces vanilla schnapps
- 1 1/2 ounces triple sec
- 1 1/2 ounces white creme de cacao
Pour your liqueurs into a hurricane glass. Now pour in some nice cold milk. Stir it, garnish it with an orange slice, and serve.
