The Mudslide is a rich creamy cocktail made from BaileysKahlua/Tia Maria, and vodka served very cold, and is pretty much an alcoholic milkshake. A mudslide is very similar to the ever popular white russian, just with the addition of more alcohol in the form of the Baileys Irish cream liqueur.

The mudslide is ideal 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. I however, prefer it without either.


  1. Place a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Then pour in the Baileys (Irish cream), Kahlua/Tia Maria coffee liqueur, vodka and cream.
  3. Shake until the cocktail shaker is cold to the touch. 
  4. Fill the cocktail glass with several fresh ice cubes. 
  5. Finally, sieve and pour the mudslide from mixture into the cocktail glass. 
The origin of the Mudslide goes back the 1950's and a barman on the Cayman Islands.
