Mudslides are a delicious treat, suitable for any time of year, or day for that matter. The best thing about them is that they’re basically a liquid, drinkable dessert. The Mudslide cocktail is similar to a White Russian, but with Irish cream instead of regular dairy cream. They’re made with equal parts of coffee liqueur, vodka and Irish cream. Essentially, they’re nothing but alcohol, which makes for a stiff drink. But, given that they’re so delicious, they don’t seem to have any bite to them. You’re definitely going to want more than one, but you might want to limit how many you drink in one sitting. Here is a list of the best Mudslide cocktails.
This is the basic recipe, similar to the original. It’s pretty “no- frills”, as far as recipes go, but that makes it easy and quick to prepare.
This recipe is great because it takes the original mudslide recipe and turns it into something close to a mocha frappuccino. The chocolate syrup adds more sweetness, and the whipped cream creates even more decadence, making it seem more like a frozen treat than a cocktail. Pro tip: you can drizzle more chocolate syrup in the glass before you pour the drink in it, and drizzle some over the whipped cream.
This recipe is great for solo indulgence, or parties. It takes the original Mudslide recipe and adds a cookies and cream twist to it. And who doesn’t love cookies and cream?
This recipe is great because it’s so easy to make. The addition of Chambord raspberry liqueur gives it an extra zip of fruity flavor that’s unexpected. Just be careful because it also adds to the alcohol content of the drink, and you really won’t notice it.
This is a great drink for the holidays. Peppermint is always a festive addition to any drink made during the cold winter months. It’s also great for anyone, like me, who enjoys chocolate-peppermint anything.
What’s better than a dessert cocktail? A dessert cocktail made with Nutella, of course! This yummy drink is not only made with Nutella, but Frangelico, which is a type of hazelnut liqueur. So, it has a lot of nutty flavor.
The Mississippi Mudslide cocktail is an interesting twist on the Mudslide. Rather than using vodka, Jim Beam Red Stag Black Cherry is used in it’s place. This gives the drink a bit of a fruity flavor, and for even more you can top it with whipped cream and a cherry.
This is actually more like enjoying two milkshakes at once. One is strawberry with Irish cream, and the other is vanilla that’s infused with vodka and Kahlua. The result is one awesome boozy milkshake that would be excellent on its own or with dessert.
This is a festive holiday cocktail that would be a hit at parties. It’s like a boozy eggnog shake, and even those that aren’t particularly fond of eggnog will find something about this drink to love.
The Mudslide is a classic, decadent drink. It’s so similar to a dessert that you could serve one after dinner and no one would miss the cake. There are a lot of different ways to put a twist on the mudslide, so get creative. It’s simple to make, and easy to drink, so it might just become one of your favorite drinks!
