What's a mudslide?
This mudslide cocktail is a classic dessert cocktail. It dates back to the 1970s when it was served on the Cayman Islands. It's kind of like a white Russian since it's really creamy, but it's made with chocolate sauce, coffee cream, and Irish cream liqueur. It's as delicious as it sounds!
Ingredients You'll Need
- Vodka- use your favorite!
- Coffee Liqueur- I used Kalhlua.
- Irish Cream Liqueur- Baileys Irish Cream works best.
- Ice- as much as you want.
- To serve- Chocolate shavings and chocolate syrup.
Oh, and you can use chocolate syrup to make this Starbucks cafe mocha. So next time you need a morning pick-me-up with a chocolate drizzle, give that recipe a try.
How To Make a Mudslide
Step 1: Combine. First, drizzle chocolate syrup inside your cocktail glasses. This is really what takes the mudslide drink to the next level of deliciousness. Next, add vodka, coffee liqueur, and Irish cream to a shaker. Then, add ice and shake to combine everything until the shaker is very cold.
Step 2: Serve. Now that the drink is mixed, pour the cold cocktail mixture into the chocolate drizzled cocktail glasses. You can drizzle some more chocolate sauce on top as a garnish. If you wish, add some whipped cream and chocolate shavings on top as well, or serve in a bowl or glass with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Finally, serve immediately and enjoy!
