Frozen Mudslide Drink – The Adult Milkshake

What’s a girl to do with homemade Kahlua and homemade Baileys Irish Cream? Mudslides, of course! For my friend who, after reading the Baileys post, emailed, “That’s not a cupcake. I feel so betrayed,” don’t worry: a mudslide cupcake is coming soon!

Frozen Mudslide Drink Recipe

Jonathan and I just happened to have a bartender friend visiting town when we wanted to make the frozen mudslides. This is how he made them, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

    Try adding Tia Maria, then top with a dash of frangelico for a bushwacker.
