The Mudslide has become a classic and originates back in the 1970s. The story goes that a customer ordered a White Russian, but the bartender adjusted the recipe to include what ingredients he had on hand, including Irish Cream. The Mudslide was born and became an instant hit.

Mudslide Recipe

While the drink looks and tastes extravagant, it is very simple to make at home. Since you need one ounce of each ingredient, the recipe is super easy to memorize. Add one ounce each of your vodka of choice, coffee liqueur (like Kahlua), Baileys Irish Cream, and heavy cream to a cocktail shaker with ice. Give it a good shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

  3. Strain into a chilled martini glass
  4. Garnish with chocolate shavings and enjoy!

How to Serve

Serve your Mudslide immediately in a chilled martini glass to enjoy it while it is icy cold. Chocolate shavings dress up the presentation of the cocktail as well as adds additional flavor and a sweet aroma.
