Boozy Orange White Chocolate Float

Boozy Orange White Chocolate FloatWanna try something indulgent and delicious? We teamed up with Amarula to make this boozy orange white chocolate float that fits the bill in every possible way! It reminds us of a grown up Orange Julius or like an orange creamsicle float cocktail. It’s ultra creamy, frosty and less sweet than you might expect, until the ice cream kicks in! You might want a straw AND a spoon for this one. Here’s the recipe:Boozy Orange White Chocolate Float Boozy Orange White Chocolate Float, serves one

Boozy Orange White Chocolate Float You’re gonna love this boozy treat! The unexpected flavor and melty ice cream are an unbelievable combination! Just a side note, not only did Amarula make an amazing partner for my cocktail idea, but it’s actually a super inspiring company. $1 from every bottle of Amarula Cream sold goes straight to the Wildlife Conservation Society to help save the African Elephant and its habitat.

  • Hi guys

    I would love it if you could do a post on basic alcohol to keep on hand for these kinds of drinks/cocktails that you post about. I don’t know where to start without investing in a bar! Like if you had a $100 budget,what would you buy to start with?

  • So delish! if I wasn’t pregnant I would so sip one of these, they sound great.

  • Yumm!!! I am originally from the sunny shores of South Africa so have a few bottles of Amarula in my collection. I’m always stumped on creative ways to use it. We usually do a traditional cocktail called a Don Pedro. Really tasty but so pleased to add an additional recipe to mix things up a bit. Would be really keen to see more yummy Amarula recipes 🙂 Thanks Elsie!!!

  • Oh cool! I’m from South Africa and Amarula is absolutely one of my favourite alcoholic drinks that is made locally. 🙂 Definitely need to try this recipe out. Thanks!

  • This sounds amazing! I love the idea of white chocolate and orange, I’m a sucker for orange during December!

  • Amarula was that tasty milkshake treat that I used to steal from my parents fridge at the ripe age of 13…I knew it was alcoholic….that’s why I stole it hahaha I love that there is an underlining charity attached to it though, these are the type of things I am exploring for 2014 posts. This boozy drink looks flipping tasty!!

  • This actually reminds me of my favorite spiked hot chocolate with Grand Marnier.It is amazing on a cold day or night.

  • Hi Jessica!
    I’m not sure where it came from. It was a gift and I absolutely love it!

  • I’ve never heard of Amarula. Sounds pretty awesome, I’ll have to look for it next time I’m at the store. I love the sound of a “grown up” Orange Julius, too 🙂
