Creamsicle Shot Recipe

Featuring a creamy orange flavor, the orange creamsicle is a liquid version of the popular frozen treat. Using vanilla vodka for this recipe is a great way to use up some of the sweet vodkas that were available when the drink first became popular. These days, there are a number of alternatives, and vodka with whipped cream is a perfect match.


  • It is not essential to add Triple Sec to the recipe, but it adds a nice sweetness. Do not use it if you do not have it in stock, or use an orange-flavored vodka instead.
  • If you want to drink the best shot, choose fresh squeezed orange juice or pulp-free bottled juice. The juice from one orange can be used to make two or three creamsicle shot.
