Creamsicle Drink with Solo Summer Slippers Contest

Creamsicle drink in Solo Cup

The livin’ is easy in the summertime, if you like to stay home. One way to enjoy the outdoors is to host a casual party in your backyard, and use Solo cups (sponseror of this post today), and then to whip up a Creamsicle drink for your guests!

I grew up with a Creamsicle being my all-time favorite popsicle. I was disappointed when I had to choose a fudgesicle or a regular popsicle, but I was happy girl when I reached into the cooler, at the local corner market, and saw the bright orange package!

The flavor of a Creamsicle drink?

Orange!

How do you make a Creamsicle drink?

My version is easy, peasy for a Creamsicle Sipper in a Solo cup:

1. Set up a drink station in your backyard using Red Solo cups.

2. Make sure you have a bucket of ice on hand, filling your glass 1/2 way with ice.

3. Fill the glass with either 1/2 cup of sparkling water, tonic water, or 7-Up for the base.

4. If you want to make the drink alcoholic, add 3 T. of your favorite gin.

4. Cut orange slices easy to squeeze for fresh orange juice.

5. Set out vanilla extract with a small teaspoon, using 1/2 teaspoon per drink.

6. Optional to fill the glass to the brim with 1/2 and 1/2 or milk.

Then do what I do. Sit back, shut your eyes, and take your first sip.

Then what comes next is what every person should do: Pretend you are a kid again.

Most of us have great memories as a kid, and Solo cups and tasty drinks resonate for most of us as happy memories!
