There are three basic ways to make drinks with rum, orange juice and ice cream. You can pour the ingredients together to create a float, blend the ingredients together to create a smoothie or stir/shake the ingredients together to create a regular drink. Sometimes called a creamsicle, the fruity tropical cocktail is quick to whip up, no matter how you make it. It can also be a tasty cool treat on a hot summer’s day. The rum provides bite, the ice cream provides a creamy cool taste and the orange juice provides a citrusy sweet flavor.
Pour the rum and orange juice into a large glass.
Add a small dollop of ice cream to the glass.
Serve the float with a regular straw.
Add the rum, orange juice and ice cream to a blender.
Blend until smooth and pour into a large glass.
Serve the smoothie with a spoon and thick straw.
Stir the rum, orange juice and ice cream together in a large glass. Alternately, shake the rum and the orange juice together in an ice-filled shaker and strain into a large glass with the ice cream.
Use the edge of the spoon to break up the ice cream and lightly blend it in with the other liquids.
Serve the drink with a thick straw.
