Orange Dreamsicle Floatini | A delicious mix of adult cocktail and fun kid drink!

Orange Dreamsicle Floatini | A delicious mix of adult cocktail and fun kid drink!

So, this isn’t so much a recipe as it is instructions for a really fun time. I mean, three ingredients, does it even count?

Okay, but it really does count, because these are insanely delicious.

Around the time that Quinn was three months old . . . actually right around the time I was starting this very blog, I started drinking diet orange soda and UV Cake Vodka. Like by the bucket.

Okay, maybe not by the bucket, but I reeeeeeeaally liked it. It became my favorite drink. So much so that I pretty much made anyone who came to my house taste it. Some people were immediately hooked, and others liked it, but I’m pretty sure they just wanted their cocktail to taste like an adult beverage.

Today I scoff at those people and give you the Orange Dreamsicle Floatini!

Can you believe that we are almost done with summer? It seems crazy to me. And kind of a bummer too, because just when I am pulling away from the zombieness that is having a newborn and headed into full nights of sleep, the best season of the year is drawing to a close. So in rebellion against the end of summer, I am going to be giving you a couple more very much summery posts. I know . . . the pumpkin will be here soon, but until then, have an Orange Dreamsicle Floatini with me, will you?

        Lisa,what is cake vodka???

        • Lisa Longley says

          Cake flavored vodka!! It’s totally amazing. I know that Pinnacle and UV sell it, but you might have to ask at your local liquor store. It can be hard to find.
