Pretty much a liquid dessert (we’re not complaining)

  • Ice Cubes
  • 1 Part Kahlúa
  • 1 Part Absolut Vodka
  • 1.5 Parts Irish Cream Liqueur
  • Parts
  • Ml
  • Oz
  1. 1. Add the Kahlúa coffee liqueur, Absolut Vodka and Irish cream liqueur into a shaker.
  2. 2. Add in lots of ice and shake together.
  3. 3. Serve in a rocks glass with fresh ice.

Just like its Frozen Mudslide cousin, you can make this cocktail look even more inviting by sprinkling a whole lot of chocolate flakes on top. Estimated ABV = 16% (Kahlúa Original 16%) Estimated ABV = 17% (Kahlúa Original 20%) The exact value depends on how you mix, which measures you use and even your glass!

How long does it take to make a Mudslide?

Less than two minutes. Maybe even one, once you’ve done it a couple times.

What does a Mudslide taste like?

The Mudslide tastes sweet, creamy and has a velvety mouth-feel. Almost like a milkshake (if you’re feeling creative, try adding Kahlúa to your favorite milkshake recipes!).

What’s the secret to a perfect Mudslide?

Make sure you’re shaking the ingredients for long enough. Around 20 seconds is ideal. Also, experiment with different amounts of ice in your shaker, as this can affect the taste.

What’s the best garnish for a Mudslide?

We find that chocolate shavings, sprinkled on top, give it the perfect finishing touch, but feel free to experiment with different garnishes and see what you prefer.

When is the right time to drink a Mudslide?

There’s no “right” time. When you have it is up to you! Just remember, this is a sweet drink with some heavier ingredients, so maybe try having it after your main meal (like a dessert), or to finish off brunch.
