The Mudslide is one of the best sweet cocktails out there! This drink’s traditional version couldn’t be more sophisticated…or delicious! Shake with coffee liqueur and Irish cream, then strain into a cocktail glass. It’s more than just a glorified milkshake: it’s sophisticated and intriguing! You may also make it frozen by blending it with vanilla ice cream.


  • 1 ounce* vodka
  • 1 ounce coffee liqueur (like Kahlua)
  • 1 ½ ounces Irish cream (like Baileys)
  • 1 ½ ounces heavy cream (or 2 scoops vanilla ice cream and ½ cup ice*)
  • For the garnish: Shaved chocolate (optional), chocolate sauce for the rim (optional)


  • Classic Mudslide: Spread the chocolate sauce on a plate and carefully dip in the cocktail glass rim if desired. In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, coffee liqueur, Irish cream, and heavy cream. Shake in 2 handfuls of ice until chilled. Pour the cocktail into a cocktail glass. If desired, garnish with shaved chocolate.
  • Frozen Mudslide: In a blender, combine the vodka, coffee liqueur, Irish cream, vanilla ice cream, and ice. Pour into a large glass and blend until smooth.
