Flavored vodka mixes with Irish cream and orange liqueurs to make this sweet, sugar-rimmed cocktail.

Ingredients

  • Orange wedge
  • Vanilla Sugar (recipe below) or granulated sugar
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 cup vanilla vodka*
  • 1/2 cup Irish cream liqueur, whole milk, whipping cream, half-and-half or light cream
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau®, Grand Marnier®, orange liqueur, or orange juice
  • Thin orange slices (optional)
  • White chocolate and/or dark chocolate shavings or curls (optional)

Directions

  1. Rub the rim of four to six chilled martini glasses with a wedge of orange. Spread vanilla sugar onto a plater. Invert glasses into the sugar to coat rims. Set aside.
  2. In a cocktail shaker or container with tight-fitting lid, combine half of the ice cubes, half of the vanilla vodka, half of the Irish cream liqueur, and half of the Cointreau®. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain mixture into two or three of the martini glasses; discard ice cubes. Repeat with remaining ice cubes, vodka, liqueur, and Cointreau®. Strain into remaining martini glasses.
  3. Garnish drinks with orange slices and chocolate shavings, if you like. Makes 4 to 6 drinks.

Tip

  • * If you do not have vanilla vodka, substitute 1 cup regular vodka and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Vanilla Sugar

Ingredients

  • 1 quart canning jar
  • 4 cups sugar
