It has been a long week and now that the weekend is here with all the heat of summer, you deserve a cool refreshing treat. While many cocktails may fit the bill for cool and refreshing, few reach the decadence of of a frozen mudslide. It is basically an alcohol based milkshake! And the best part is they aren’t hard to make at home, here’s how you do it.
The Frozen Mudslide
- 1 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1 oz Irish Cream
- 1 oz milk or cream or even ice cream (optional)
- 1 cup Ice
- garnish with chocolate syrup or even whipped cream
Like most frozen cocktails, the frozen mudslide requires the use of a blender. Pour all ingredients into the blender and blend on high for about 30 seconds. Some recipes for the frozen mudslide call for milk/cream, others don’t. I personally like stronger drinks, so I usually leave it out, but if you want a smoother even more milkshake like cocktail, go ahead and add the dairy. Once fully mixed, pour the contents of the blender into a hurricane glass or other tall glass such as a pilsner glass. Or if you want to look a bit classier as you drink your alcoholic milkshake, pour into a martini glass. Garnish with chocolate syrup (you can either pour a bit around the glass before you add the cocktail or just pour some one top once it is in the glass). You can also top the frozen mudslide off with some whipped cream if you want to take this cocktail to the next level. No judgments, it’s the weekend – enjoy yourself! Now get out your blender and start mixing!
