If you are looking for other cheesecake drinks to try, here are a few.

Orange Julius Martini Ingredients Needed:

Vanilla Vodka: a flavored vodka that infuses the neutral spirit with the essence of vanilla, offering a sweet, aromatic, and versatile profile.

Triple Sec: a widely popular sweet orange-flavored liqueur that plays a fundamental role in many cocktails. Triple Sec is a clear liqueur, made from the dried peels of bitter and sweet oranges.

Orange Juice: you can use fresh or prepackaged orange juice for this recipe. It is best to use the pulp-free type.

Half & Half: half and half is what was used for this drink, but if you want to make it even creamer and don’t mind the extra calories, you can use heavy cream in its place.

Cheesecake Syrup: (optional but this is what adds the cheesecake flavor) You can use the sugared type or the sugar-free. Both work just as well.

Whipped Cream: this is optional and is used to garnish the top of this cheesecake orange Julius martini.

Orange Slice: this too is just for garnish to dress up the drink or glass. You can skip it if you do not have any on hand or want to make the drink without the extra expense. 

Ice Cubes: needed for mixing this cocktail to make it nice and chilled without having to take the time to chill in the fridge.

How To Make This Orange Julius Martini:

  1. Mix the Ingredients: In a shaker, combine the vanilla vodka, triple sec (or orange liqueur), orange juice, half and half, and cheesecake syrup if using. The cheesecake syrup adds a distinctive cheesecake flavor, enhancing the dessert-like quality of the drink.
  2. Shake: Add a good amount of ice to the shaker. Secure the lid and shake vigorously until well chilled. The idea is to get the mixture cold while also slightly frothing the cream to add to the texture.
  3. Strain: Strain the mixture into your prepared martini glass. If using a rimmed glass be sure to use a smooth pour without disturbing the graham cracker rim.
  4. Garnish: Add a dollop of whipped cream on top. For an extra touch of elegance and flavor, place an orange slice on the rim. 
  5. Serve Immediately: Serve your Cheesecake Orange Julius Martini immediately to enjoy its creamy, citrusy goodness at the perfect temperature and consistency. 

Expert Teaching Tips:

If you want this to have even more of a cheesecake vibe, you can start by rimming your martini glass with crushed graham crackers for that authentic cheesecake crust feel. First, moisten the rim of the glass with an orange slice or a little bit of orange juice, then dip it into crushed graham crackers spread on a plate.

If you’re feeling particularly decadent, you can also garnish with a small slice of cheesecake. Or a cheesecake bite on the side or even on a skewer across the top.

Cheesecake Flavor: If you can’t find cheesecake syrup, you can try blending a small amount of actual cheesecake into the drink mix before shaking. This can add body and richness, but make sure to blend it smoothly to avoid lumps. You can also use the cheesecake candy flavoring.

Adjust to Taste: Feel free to adjust the proportions of the ingredients according to your taste. Especially the amount of orange juice and cream, to find the perfect balance between tartness and creaminess to suit your preference.

  1. Can I make it non-alcoholic?
    • Yes, simply omit the vodka and orange liqueur. Use a non-alcoholic vanilla flavoring or syrup and a bit more orange juice or a splash of vanilla almond milk for the base.
  2. Is it possible to make a vegan version?
    • Absolutely. Substitute the heavy cream with a plant-based cream or full-fat coconut milk. Ensure your vanilla vodka and orange liqueur are vegan-friendly (most are, but it’s always good to check).
  3. Can I make this in advance?
    • The cocktail is best served fresh due to the heavy cream and the frothy texture achieved by shaking. However, you can premix the alcohol and orange juice and keep it chilled, adding the cream and ice, then shaking right before serving.

This imaginative cocktail marries the nostalgia of an Orange Julius with the decadent flavor of cheesecake. All presented in the form of a martini, making it a delightful treat for special occasions or as a novel dessert cocktail.
