The Pink Squirrel with Ice Cream is a sweet and boozy adult milkshake with flavors of almond and chocolate. Vanilla ice cream complements the sweet notes of White Creme De Cacao and Creme De Noyaux to create a creamy pink drink that is perfect for dessert!

The Pink Squirrel can be enjoyed as a blended ice cream drink or a shaken cocktail. Some sources claim that the ice cream version is the original and the shaken version came later, which is the opposite of how ice cream drinks typically come to be.

What is Creme De Noyaux?

Creme De Noyaux is an almond-flavored liqueur with a bright red hue, responsible for the Pink Squirrel’s pretty in pink hue and nutty flavor. It’s made from apricot kernels or the kernels of peach or cherry pits, which give it it’s almond-like essence.

What’s in a Pink Squirrel Ice Cream Drink

A Pink Squirrel Ice Cream has three ingredients:

  • White Creme de Cacao– A sweet, chocolate-flavored liqueur found in many dessert drinks.
  • Creme de Noyaux– an almond-flavored liqueur with a bright red color. It can be difficult to find, Amaretto will also work for this recipe.
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
