Orange Creamsicle Party

Well, it's officially sweat season around here. Not to be confused with sweater season. Quite the opposite, actually! We hit 90-degrees last week, so our weekends have now moved outside. Which means cookouts, s'mores in the chiminea, pool parties, and lots of visiting friends. Thank goodness our patio got a makeover last year! I adore this time of year, and all the bright colors and flavors that come with it.

But the Texas heat requires treats that are cold and refreshing....like this orange creamsicle float!

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (get the good stuff!)
Vanilla Vodka (optional)


{Directions}

Stuff your glass with as much ice cream as it will hold
Pour two-fingers of Vanilla Vodka over top (optional)
Fill the rest of the cup with Orange Zevia
Garnish with wafer cookies and orange candies

We invited a few friends over to celebrate the new season, and I used the bright colored soda cans as decor inspiration. Sticking with shades of orange and yellow, and using citrus fruits as accents, gave everything a fun and cohesive look, with little effort.

Have you seen Susty Party supplies?! They were just featured on the TV show, Shark Tank, last week, and are pretty much the cutest ever. Not to mention environmentally-friendly.

The kids had fun creating their own non-alcoholic floats, and the grown-ups enjoyed the extra kick in theirs! We don't drink much soda, but with no artificial colors or sweeteners, I don't have to worry about them drinking Zevia. Who knew orange soda wasn't supposed to be orange?!?

You could use orange sorbet for an even lighter treat, but the ice cream makes it so thick and creamy.
