Blood Orange and Rose Creamsicle Cocktail Recipe

This Blood Orange and Rose Creamsicle Cocktail is not only boozy, but it features great ingredients that keep it from being cloying. 

Valentine’s day is around the corner, which means lots of pinks, red, and flowers flooding our feeds!

My husband and I actually have never celebrated the holiday. However, we always make cocktails and dinner together.

So it’s somewhat of a romantic night (rather than getting takeout and sitting on the couch, staring at our phones or laptops.)

One concoction that I, Ashley, will be making this year is a Blood Orange and Rose Creamsicle Cocktail!

What Ingredients are in the Blood Orange and Rose Creamsicle Cocktail?

This is a grown-up creamsicle.

Not only is it boozy, but it features great ingredients that keep it from being cloying.

Vodka creates a neutral base that doesn’t compete with Licor 43, vanilla, citrusy herbal liqueur.

The cream gives the cocktail a great texture and helps mellow out the booze so that you almost can’t taste it. (Dangerous, right?!)

If you are wanting a delicious drink to make for your V-day celebrations, this cocktail will woo you with its creamy, sweet, and citrusy flavors!

If you follow us on Instagram, you know I have been using lots of blood oranges in my cocktails. I can’t help it!

They are the prettiest color and have a slightly sweeter flavor than regular oranges.

Lastly, I wanted to add in a floral component, which is unexpected in a creamsicle.

It paired so well with the Licor 43 and besides, what’s Valentine’s Day without some roses?!

Speaking of, look at that hot pink rose — how perfect is that color?

I will definitely be hinting to Mr. to pick me up a similar bouquet soon!

Champagne is a great way to celebrate the day. But I like something a little more special and personal like making a custom drink together!

  2. I really like the way you celebrate Valentine’s day. It shouldn’t be pompous. It should be romantic and private and me and my husband always do the same thing. We don’t drink cocktails though, but the recipe you suggested is very good and I will make a batch when I meet up with my friends. Have a lovely week!5 stars
