Orange Creamsicle Cocktail

The main character in Beauty Secrets is Ziva Diaz–a girl boss who doesn’t back down from a challenge.

Orange Creamsicle Cocktail

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.
