Review: Adelaides Dreamsicle

Adelaides Dreamsicle is a cream liqueur made from Orange wine, natural flavors, and real dairy cream.  This is one of three new liqueurs recently released by Carr Spirits.  What is orange wine?  There are actually two types of orange wine.  One is made from white wine grapes that are left to macerate with their skins on.  This wine originated in the Republic of Georgia and about five years ago some wineries in the US started making it here.  The orange wine used in crafting Adelaides Dreamsicle is made from the other orange wine, which is made from fruit.  These orange wines are commonly used in RTD brands including Tekeen and BeatBox.  Like the previously reviewed, and home kitchen created Adelaides Coconut, and Adelaides Caramel Mocha Mojo, Adelaides Dreamsicle is made from genuine ingredients with no artificial flavors added.      Read more »
