I tend to have no rules when it comes to mixing cocktails… if I mix something up and it tastes phenomenal, I’m going to share it. Just like these amazing (and easy!) Creamsicle Margaritas.

This margarita has the flavors of creamy oranges, tequila and lime. I literally thought of this margarita when I woke up in the middle of the night on National Margarita Day. It must have been from seeing all of the awesome photographs of margaritas on Instagram earlier that day!
I looked it up online and most other recipes are frozen versions, but I didn’t see any with whipped vodka (which is what I thought of in the middle of the night!). So I took a chance, mixed it until I got it like I liked it… and that was it. This is my Creamsicle Margarita.
You can make it by the glass or by the pitcher. The ingredients are measured in “parts”, because that’s how I worked with it while measuring ingredients until I got the flavor like I wanted it.
It was SO HARD for me not to drink one of these after photographing (although I HAD to sip to taste it, right?!). I strained them into a pitcher for later tonight… trust me, they’re not going to waste! 🙂
And if you’re hesitant about mixing tequila with vodka, don’t be. Take my word that this tastes… well, you’ll just have to try it to find out for yourself! Cheers! xoxo
