Origin of the Creamsicle Cocktail

What is a Creamsicle

Creamsicle is a cool, delicious summertime treat that combines the flavors of orange and vanilla. The original Creamsicle was created in 1905 by ice cream vendor, Frank Epperson. He comboned the flavors of fruit juice and vanilla ice cream. He called it an "Eppsicle" after himself. The name was later changed to "Creamsicle" when it was introduced to the public.
The Creamsicle became very popular in the 1970s and is still enjoyed by many today. It can be made at home or purchased pre-made from the store. Either way, it's a refreshing and tasty treat that's perfect for summer!
