Happy Hour Friday - Orange Dreamsicles

Ohh...I loved them things when I was a kid ... we would wait for the ice cream truck EVERY STINKIN SATURDAY and beg my parents for the quarter ... Pushups and Orange Dreamsicles were my favs ...

And even as an adult, if I'm given a choice, yes, I will have the pushup please :-) ... and LOOK, now I found an adult beverage that taste a LOT like a dreamsicle.

AND ...  it uses the WHIPPED vodka (thankfully as I do not want to drink it straight!) and I had a little bit left still in a bottle from a previous night of stupidity ... so grab that blue bottle of yumminess and get crackin!

2 oz whipped vodka (Pinnacle is what I have but I thought I saw another brand putting it out now)
2 oz orange juice (um, personally, I HATE pulp and would strongly discourage it in a cocktail)
2 oz lemon lime soda (I used sierra mist as that's what I had on hand)
splash of grenadine



Umm....easy. Add ice to a large shaker or glass. Pour in the ingredients. Stir or shake (I personally am a shaker so I shake)

Strain into tall glass with ice. Garnish with slice of orange and cherry (all I had were mini oranges).

I also poured mine into a large mouth wine glass as it's easier for me to hold (the tall glass got a little frosty and about slipped out of my hand!!)

Sip, say yummm and give a toast!

Remember, I encourage you to always drink responsibly and PLEASE do not drink and drive!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these great parties ... make sure you check them out!
