Mudslide cocktail
The Mudslide cocktail is a rich creamy cocktail made from BaileysKahlua/Tia Maria, and vodka served very cold – and is very much like an alcoholic milkshake.
A mudslide is very similar to the ever-popular White Russian cocktail, just with the addition of more alcohol in the form of the Baileys Irish cream liqueur.
The mudslide cocktail is best created with lots of ice and mixed well, sometimes it is topped with whipped cream, and dusted with cocoa giving this cocktail even more of a dessert feel – certainly one to avoid if you are counting calories!
