Morir Soñando

Two martini glasses filled with morir sonando, ice, and orange twists.

This morir soñando tastes like a delicious spiked creamsicle. Licor 43 is a Spanish liqueur made from citrus and fruit juices, flavored with vanilla and other aromatic herbs and spices, with a total of 43 different ingredients (hence the name). It is light-bodied and sweet.–Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack and Vianney Rodriguez

Recipe Testers' Reviews

To die dreaming. An apt name for the drink that, with a little tweak, made all my testers' eyes roll into the back of their heads, eyelids fluttering shut and murmurs on their lips. Ladies and gents, this morir soñando is a boozy creamsicle. My one and only change is to do this with half-and-half, not milk. It's better that way. This delicious treat—clearly a dessert, breakfast, or mommy's little helper drink—takes about 2 minutes to make. Licor 43 is easier than expected to find, considering I hadn't heard of it before. My testers then tried the Licor 43 in a few other methods, so chances are your bottle won't go to waste.

Delish! This drink was a breeze to make and tasted just like a creamsicle, one of my absolute favorite flavor combinations. I only had a blood orange, so I used that for the juice. The cocktail came together quickly and was very smooth. I could hardly tell there was any alcohol in the drink at all. One of my new favorites, especially for the summer!

  1. I’m Dominican, and while the recipe is accurate, the milk we used from what I remember as a kid was Carnation milk. Enjoy.

  2. Finally bought a bottle of Licor 43 today, and I love this… I used half & half instead of milk. Good Night, Sweet Dreams!
