Baileys Mudslide Martini

Have you ever made a whipped cream Vodka recipe? This is my first. I’m sold. It’s a perfect addition to your cream based cocktails.

Whipped cream vodka doubles down on the creaminess of this Baileys Irish Cream Recipe.

When you are looking to make a creamy vodka martini like this one. The baileys and smirnoff are fantastic together.

The Mudslide Origins:

As legend has it the original Mudslide cocktail originated on Grand Cayman Island at the Wreck Bar on Rum Point in the 1950 era. Someone wanted a White Russian and the bartender had to substitute some ingredients and viola! the Mudslide was born.

The Wreck’s recipe (they claim it as the original) contained absolut vodka, kahlúa, baileys or molly’s irish cream & ice. They are STILL serving this recipe today.

Variations Of The Mudslide

The Mudslide has gone through many changes from the original Mudslide which is itself apparently a variation on the white russian.

In my research I ran into many different recipes all calling themselves the mudslide. I put the original recipe up above for you. Here are some variants in case you want to give these ideas a try.

  • Replace the ice with TWO scoops of ice cream. It’s like a super indulgent spiked milkshake at that level. This one will bite you hard but I bet it’s fantastic.
  • Trade out the vodka for a dark rum like Myers.
  • Use any coffee liqueur or chocolate liqueur.
  • play with the amounts of all of these ingredients to your taste. OR use our recipe which is lighter and in my opinion absolutely delicious (see it below).

The Kahlua coffee liqueur and ice cream add an over the top hit of alcohol and calories. The vanilla ice cream is well over 100 calories per scoop and the kahlua adds yet another approximately 200 calories for the 2 oz. called for in most recipes. Youch!

Baileys mudslide Martini is creamy just like you expect. Very smooth and yummy.

Baileys Mudslide Recipe:

Our Mudslide recipe is a lighter variation of the frozen milkshake Mudslide. In both calories and alcohol.

Our Baileys Mudslide Latte Martini in all it’s scrumptious glory is under 200 calories with only three oz. of alcohol. Complete. So have two! You’ll still enjoy lower calories. Just make sure your not the designated driver. 🙂

NOTE: We did NOT purposely make a low cal or low carb Mudslide. But it is much lighter than the ice cream version. If you want to skinny this drink down further go for it. But this is a perfect blend of flavors we love and don’t want to mess with.

Our Coffee Latte martini recipe is made with Baileys Irish Cream. The Whipped Cream Smirnoff vodka works perfectly with the Irish Cream and brewed coffee.

Together they produce the creamy indulgent flavors we are shooting for in this mudslide drink.

The Method:

This is not a blender drink because it’s not a frozen mudslide. You need some ice and a cocktail shaker. Shake away!

Garnish Suggestions:

  • As shown: Chocolate syrup drizzle, whipped cream and chocolate shavings make a pretty drink presentation.
  • Serve with chocolate covered espresso beans. Put one on top of the whipped cream or serve them on the side.
  • Try crushed peppermint hard candy at the holidays for fun and extra rich flavor.
  • Hot Weather Tip! Set your mudslide into the freezer for 10 minutes or so to chill it until it’s getting thick. Very refreshing on a hot day.
