Can We Make Creamsicle Mead? Worth it or no?

What is a Creamsicle you may ask? A Creamsicle is a frozen dessert with a vanilla ice cream core and a fruit sherbet coating. The classic Creamsicle flavor combination is orange and vanilla, although numerous variations on this premise can be found in stores. For Bir however, Creamsicle is one of those flavors from his youth that he just liked. Kind of reminds him of St Joseph’s baby aspirin, or ice cream, but hey… let’s make it a mead. So, how did it come out?
