Frozen Pumpkin Mudslides – The Halloween Drink

Halloween doesn’t have a drink.  On Christmas, we know that we should be drinking eggnog and on New Year’s Eve, we’ve got to toast using champagne.  But, on Halloween, our party drink is left to chance.  Many Halloween parties resort to punch with varying levels of quality and varying levels of alcohol.  These punches are frightening because you never know what is going to be in them (I always expect the worst) – and who really wants to drink something with eyeballs floating in it?

This Halloween, I suggest frozen pumpkin mudslides as the drinks to sip on while little witches, princesses, and ninjas run around your block knocking on doors.  Frozen pumpkin mudslides transform the frozen mudslide (a cocktail containing Baileys Irish Cream, Kahlua, vodka, and vanilla ice cream that I refer to as an adult milkshake) into a fall drink that will be the star of your Halloween party – only upstaged by the woman who shows up in lingerie calling it a “costume.”

Pumpkin, I discovered, goes so well in frozen mudslides that I may make frozen mudslides this way from now on – Halloween or not.
