Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
It was actually invented by an 11-year-old in 1905. Little Frank Epperson managed to encase vanilla ice cream in frozen fruit juice, and the creamsicle was born.
These cocktails are garnished with whipped cream and very cream. When they sit, the whipped cream will seep into the cocktail over time and it won’t be nearly as pretty.
