Childhood memories of slurping down an Orange Julius inspired Jay Carr to create an adult version of the treat for his Providence, Rhode Island bar, The Eddy. Creamy, sweet and acidic ingredients come together to create a cocktail that tastes surprisingly similar to the creamsicle-like drink. The only thing missing is the straw. But if you want to use one to drink it, we won’t hold it against you.
