Foodie Friday feature.....creamsicle!

Remember the Creamsicle popsicles you ate as a kid? (heck, maybe you still eat them as an adult!) Well, this is my grown up cocktail version! Super easy, super yummy, drink-it-for dessert concoction! Here's what you need:

  • ice- fill glass 1/2 full

  • 3/4 c. orange juice (I like Simply Orange pulp free)

  • 2 shots of vanilla rum

  • a splash of grapefruit soda, such as Squirt
and of course a pretty umbrella straw!
As I was putting this together for the photo, I realized I had forgotten to add some garnish (it's my first attempt, I promise I'll do better next time!)
You could top it with a bit of whipped cream, or an orange twist. You'll love it! So yummy on a hot day.

that's all for today- check back in to see what happens with this l'il beauty....I was in my favorite antiques mall yesterday- Aunt Bee's House. (formerly Spencer's Alley) I have made some incredible finds there in the past few months! The price on this was too good to pass up, so she came home with me. This will find a home in our bedroom makeover. If you've never been into Aunt Bee's, (or your local antique/crafter's mall) check it out! You're supporting local artists and craftspeople, and the prices are super if you're trying to find budget friendly items for your home.
Stay tuned!


  1. LOL - I was eyeing that dresser! I'm so glad you gave it a good home. It was far too cute to just be sitting in the store lonely. Love, love, love Aunt Bee's House.
