Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week Jackalope Ranch brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: The Creamsicle Martini from T Cook's at the Royal Palms.
Nothing elicits memories of lazy summertime days quite so well as an orange creamsicle from the ice cream truck. Lucky us, T Cook's at the Royal Palms transformed this summer treat for a more adult audience (think Orange Grey Goose and Grand Marnier) to create a creamy orange cocktail that brings back those childhood memories.
(recipe after the jump)
1 1/2 oz. Orange Grey Goose
1 oz. Grand Marnier
1/2 oz. half & half or heavy cream
1/2 oz. milk
Splash of simple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain contents into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of orange. Fire up the sprinklers, slip 'n' slide, or pool jets and relive those carefree days. Just make sure to keep this frosty drink away from the kiddos.
