Orange In Your Stocking Cocktail
When I was young, I remember my brothers and I sneaking down the stairs on Christmas morning, before mom and dad were awake, to see if Santa had stopped by our house yet. We weren't allowed to open any gifts until the parents got up, but we could take a peek into our stockings. As sure as Santa is real, at the very bottom, in the toe if you will, we'd find one beautiful orange. I never knew why, but it was tradition. Now that I am all grown up, relatively speaking, the new tradition is to have an adult beverage nearby as we open gifts.  That is where this cocktail comes in. Orange In Your Stocking pays homage to memories gone by. An easy drink with just enough Sunkist Orange Soda zip to enjoy at the holidays, from Christmas to New Years Eve.

Orange In Your Stocking Cocktail Recipe
1.5 oz Vanilla Vodka
1.5 oz Heavy Cream
4 oz Sunkist Orange Soda
For this batch, I used this fun Shaker I had received from Canada Dry.
Orange In Your Stocking Cocktail
Pour the vodka and heavy cream, along with some ice, into the shaker. Give it a couple of light shakes and pour into a glass. Top with the Sunkist Orange Soda and stir lightly. You can make it kid friendly too just by leaving out the vodka.

  1. My kids are in their 20s now and I just put the gifts under the tree around 4 am on Dec. 25th. When we all wake up we open gifts. They like this tradition. I like your drink.

  2. I always love to know how to get a good deal at Target! I don't drink alcohol, but this looks really good and would be fun to make--virgin style!

  3. Kathe we always had an orange in to toe of our stocking also. I think it came from our parents not having much back in the depression and an orange was a big treat in the winter...or something like that! This 'cocktail' sounds pretty yummy!!

  4. Yep, my mom would do the orange and hard candy mix in our stockings and I would look forward to eating them. If this didn't bring back memories I almost forgot about. That drink reminds me of a liquid creamcicle . . so good!

  7. We always had oranges in our stockings too and have continued the tradition with our kids. I love the idea of a festive orange flavoured beverage during gift opening!

  13. I used to get an orange in the toe of my stocking as well. I believe fresh fruit was a real treat in days gone by, and that's why it was in the stocking. My niece loves Sunkist... I'll have to tell her about this drink:)
