Pink Squirrel Cocktail

Booze and ice cream–what could be better? (Almond liqueur and vanilla ice cream, to be exact.) This simple milkshake-style cocktail would be right at home on the set of Mad Men.

Ingredients

1/3
cup crème de noyaux (also called crème de almond)
1/3
cup white crème de cacao (plus extra for rimming glasses, if desired)
2/3
cup vanilla ice cream
Maraschino cherries, for garnish (optional)
Colored sugar or sprinkles, for rimming glasses (optional)

Directions

  • 1 If rimming glasses, moisten edges of rims with liquor or simple syrup, then dip into the sugar or sprinkles. Set glasses aside.
  • 2 Add both liqueurs and the ice cream to a blender and process until smooth.
  • 3 Pour into two large martini glasses and serve immediately.

10 Summertime Cocktails

As prepared by tbspAngela,

Can't go on vacation this summer? Mix yourself up a mini holiday in a glass.


Are all your friends packing up their bathing suits and headed somewhere fun for summer? Don't sit at hom and wallow in self-pity! It's time to turn that frown upside-down and mix up a summery cocktail. Besides, sandy beaches are overrated. (They're not, but let's just say they are to make ourselves feel better.)

Here are 10 cool, fruity drinks that can help you pretend you're on vacay.



1. Pink Squirrel Cocktail


Can't decide between a milkshake and a cocktail? Well, this one's for you, as it combines almond and cocoa liqueurs with ice cream for a creamy delight.


2. Blood-Red Sangria Cocktail


This sangria-inspired martini may require a bit of work, but the spicy, citrusy end product will be well worth it.


3. Sunrise Mimosas


Ah, yes, the mimosa, it's the perfect excuse to drink at breakfast. This version is amped up with frozen strawberries and tangerine juice.


4. Coconut Blue Hawaiian


If you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain, then try this awesome frozen drink, so good it'll make you insane.


5. Pear Cosmo Cocktail


The classic cosmopolitan has gotten a bit played out – thanks a lot, Sex and the City – so try this version made with pear and white cranberry juice for a refreshing spin.


6. Orange-Dragonfruit Cocktail


The dragonfruit is quite possibly the most exotic-sounding fruit around. So channel your inner Khaleesi (Game of Thrones, anyone?) and mix up this fruity cocktail.


7. Push Pop Cocktail


If one of your fave summertime childhood memories is of buying push-pops from the ice cream truck, it may be time to get a little nostalgic with an adult twist by making these orange-vanilla cocktails.


8. Paradise Cocktail


It's all in the name of the drink, folks. This fruity gin and brandy cocktail will take your mind on a mini holiday.


9. Watermelon Gin Cocktail


Nothing says summertime quite like watermelon – unless, of course, you're combining the fruit with booze. This drink is actually pretty fancy, too, as it's pumped up with fresh tarragon and elderflower liqueur.


10. Flirtini Cocktail


Heading out with the ladies on a warm summer night? Have a couple of these champagne and pineapple drinks before going dancing, and you may even forget that you're not on vacation.

Tips  

If you're unable to find Crème de Noyaux, substitute amaretto and 2-3 tablespoons of grenadine.
