The main character in Beauty Secrets is Ziva Diaz–a girl boss who doesn’t back down from a challenge.
At the start of the series, Ziva makes her money as a Beauty Secrets representative (think Mary Kay or Avon) and she does *plenty* of home parties.
That’s where this delicious recipe came from:
I adored it when Marion hosted Beauty Secrets parties. Not only did she always have a fabulous turnout, but her dessert spread was fantastic. Tonight, she featured buttercream-frosted sugar cookies cut in the shapes of high heels and lipsticks, chocolate-covered strawberries, raspberry crème petit fors, and mini peanut butter chocolate cheesecakes. Swoon. This, of course, was in addition to a signature creamsicle cocktail of vanilla vodka, triple sec with a splash of orange juice and half and half. Now that was refreshing. Today was turning out to be one cocktail-infused day, but I wasn’t complaining. It was good to have some days like that.
Actually, speaking of this passage, looks like I have plenty more recipes that I can blog about! Stay tuned.
But first up, here’s that Creamsicle Cocktail I promised you.
Ziva’s Orange Creamsicle Cocktail
- 1/2 ounce vanilla vodka
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- 1 ounce cream, half and half
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass.
