Default 50/50 Dreamcycle

Not sure anyone remembers those but when I was a younger thats' what I remember em' called... which was a pop sickle with orange flavored ice over a vanila ice cream center.

Not setting out to create anything, but just goofing off, I stumbled upon what reminded me precisely of this with a rum kick in the seat of the pants. I combined two rums that I infused (but rather than the kind of flash infusion I think is typical these are more along the lines of "flavored" as both went through at least a couple of weeks infusion (the orange has been continuous but I doubt there is much of any flavor being left to extraction at this point).

Anyway I poured about equal amounts over ice one day and have bee having 50/50s since. Sometimes I'll add a very light orange syrup (more like gentle sweetener than "syrup"). Anyone that likes a carbonated top - it works well with sparkling water, a splash of sparkling lemonade or limeade each worked very well with this combo adding a slightly different citrus twist on the tongue.



Both consist of La Flor de Caсa Extra Dry 4 year old.

The rum in the actual Flor bottle was Tahitian vanilla bean infused (flavored). Poor lighting and photographer, but you can see that the rum took on some color from the vanilla.

The generic bottle consists of La Flor de Caсa ED4 and is infused (flavored) with Clementine oranges (Cutties).

I'm not sure if creating this or similar flavor combo is a common occurrence but it was my first experience and certainly was by accident.

I remember those as orange creamsickle. The flavor was intoxicating. Your combo of vanilla infused FDC provides the creaminess and the orange infusion does the rest. Bottle that and send some over.

the strawberry shortcake popsickle was also to die for.

I couldn't resist temptation, and I just put together a bottle of Flor de Cana 4 year old, one vanilla bean, and Clementine rinds. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Wheni was a kid, I could not get enough creamsickles. This is one infusion I would love to taste.

All in one bottle, let us know how that goes. Also FWIW, it probably is difficult to see but there is the fruit of at least 1 Clementine in my bottle (I think I put the peel of two but did have some actual fruit in as well).

Great photoshop work, Cap'n.

My recollection is that there was a specific brand of creamsicle called Dreamsicle. So everybody wins!

Yes. Creamsickle was one of the brands. There were 50/50s (another brand term) and there were also "Dreamsickles" which I'm sure was somebody's knock off on the probably copyrighted "Creamsickle" moniker.

As to my lack of spelling you prompted me to put the word in the search bar to confirm I'm not delirious. Check this out:

http://www.grouprecipes.com/19648/dr...e-martini.html

(Be sure to click the picture for a bigger view of a real example): http://cgi.ebay.com/POPSICLE-FUDGSIC...QQcmdZViewItem

Now (Cap) I did spell Sickle wrong (cycle). If you had put an organe and vanilla Harley, you'd have me dead in the cross hairs!

The Clementine and vanilla infusion is fantastic. I have to confess this is the only infusion I have yet created that I actually like enough to drink. Since this success, I have been inspired and made another bottle for my brother's birthday next week.

I also did the ground work for the 44 Cordial that originated in Madagascar. Instead of hijacking this thread, I am going to begin a new one to hear about other people's experiences, recommendations, etc.

One last note: I have been looking in all the ice cream cases I have come by lately, but have yet to find the opportunity to relive my childhood. In the meantime, I'll enjoy my new rum infusion.
