Boozy Orange Creamsicle Milkshake recipe is a tasty twist on the traditional ice cream treat, but this one is constructed as a copycat cocktail and served with a straw instead of a popsicle stick.

This easy adult alcohol shake is a simple combination of ice cream, sherbet, heavy cream, and vodka; blended together in 5 minutes to make a dessert and sweetly spiked drink all in one.

Boozy Creamsicle MilkShake

An orange creamsicle boozy milkshake recipe is a delicious way to recreate my favorite throwback frozen ice cream dessert, simply made by blending 4 ingredients into a boozy milkshake in 5 minutes.

Cool, smooth, creamy, with a bit of tang, this refreshing adult milkshake is filled with the best creamsicle flavor combination of citrus and vanilla with an added spike of vodka to make the ultimate sophisticated sip for summer.

The classic taste of vanilla ice cream covered in an icy orange popsicle coating is perfectly captured in this creamsicle recipe, with just enough vodka to elevate it from a dreamsicle bar to a boozy beverage.

Slurp it, sip it, or eat it with a spoon, you can dress up your drink with an orange slice, some sprinkles, and whipped cream or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top to make a fancy orange creamsicle float.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I store my leftover milkshakes?

These drinks are best consumed right away, however, if you absolutely must store leftovers, then pour them into an air-tight container and store in the freezer, away from the freezer door.  

How do I unfreeze a milkshake? 

If your milkshake is completely frozen, just put it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds at a time until it’s the right consistency for drinking.

What if my milkshake is too thick?

If your milkshake is too thick, add a bit more cream (you can also add milk) and blend a bit more.

What does whipped cream-flavored vodka taste like?

Whipped cream flavored vodka is a light, sweet combination of vanilla and cream. It pairs perfectly with the vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet in this recipe.
