We were first introduced to mudslides on our honeymoon in Ocho Rios, Jamaica at the Sandals Resort. Since the resort was all inclusive, Craig sucked down mudslides for what seemed like all day long. Our palettes have changed a bit since those days of soaking up the Caribbean sun on the beach. We don’t have many mudslides these days. However, we wanted to remind you of this tasteful treat. It is an easy delight for guests or a delicious dessert to end a cookout. The beauty is that you do not need to bake or prep all day long to make this special concoction.
We made our mudslide with our favorite espresso liqueur, Caffe’ Borghetti. Other ingredients are premium vodka, Irish cream, vanilla ice cream, heavy cream and ice. We used whipped cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup and chocolate sprinkles for garnish.
Place all of the ingredients, except garnishes into a blender. Blend well. Pour into prepared cocktail glass. We used a large schooner glass. However, this would also work great in a martini glass or a tall glass beer mug.
Prior to adding the liquid to the serving glass, we drizzled chocolate syrup around the inside rim of the glass to give the drink the sliding mud effect. You can learn more about garnishing your mudslide in our previous post, “Who Needs Half Price Shakes After 8?”
Go ahead and give the mudslide a try. Your taste buds will be thankful that you did!
