Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite meal of the day is brunch. Hands down. No contest. I love a good brunch.
I love mimosas any way I can get them, from the classic recipe to Tropical Mimosas to Pineapple Upside Down Mimosas. I do NOT discriminate. There’s just something about a cocktail that starts with champagne that has me sold. And when I can have it for breakfast? I’m pretty sure there’s nothing better.
To be honest, I’ve never met a person who didn’t love mimosas. And really….what’s not to love? Orange juice + bubbles + whatever else you might want to mix in? It’s a sure win. Every time.
And these Orange Creamsicle Mimosas are even more of a win, because they bring back so many good memories from childhood. Growing up, there was nothing like a Creamsicle on a hot summer day….the best of both worlds, and the tastiest combo ever!
These Orange Creamsicle Mimosas taste just like those treats from childhood, but a lot more fun! They’re the perfect combination of orange juice, champagne, vanilla vodka, and a splash of heavy cream. Easy to make by the glass or pitcherful, and almost too easy to enjoy.
WHAT IS AN ORANGE CREAMSICLE?
An Orange Creamsicle is a frozen dessert that was invented by Frank Epperson in 1905. He successfully experimented with enclosing vanilla ice cream with a layer of frozen fruit juice when he was just 11 years old, and he called his invention the “Episicle”. It later became known as “popsicle”, “creamsicle” and even “dreamsicle”.
CREAMSICLE VS. DREAMSICLE
The two names are often used interchangeably. The only difference between the two treats is that a Creamsicle is made with ice cream, while a Dreamsicle is made with ice milk.
