I am SO excited to be a part of this wonderful event because this is our VERY FIRST cocktail here at 365 Days of Baking & More!! While I’m not one to regularly imbibe and one glass of wine will usually put me to sleep, I thought it would be great fun to participate and come up with an original (at least to me, anyway!) alcoholic beverage.
When the Mr. and I go out for a date, he goes for the beer and I always go for the fruity drinks.
I don’t like beer and have never had more than a few sips of one, so I joke that I just like to go for the hard liquor. And mudslides have always been one of my favorites. So, onto the recipe!!!!
SAVE THIS MUDSLIDE TO YOUR FAVORITE PINTEREST BOARD!

Frozen Marshmallow Mudslide
- 1 oz. marshmallow vodka
- ½ oz. coffee liquor
- ½ ounce Irish cream liquor
- 3 tablespoons french vanilla coffee creamer
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup ice cubes
- chocolate syrup and toasted marshmallows for garnish
- Into a blender, pour the vodka. Add the coffee liquor, Irish cream liquor, coffee creamer, and the milk. Pour the ice into the blender.
- Put the lid onto the blender and pulse to crush the ice or use your blender’s ice setting.
- Pour some chocolate sauce onto a plate and dip the top of the glass into it. Slice a toasted marshmallow and place on the glass rim.
I always rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 and this Frozen Marshmallow Mudslide earned 3 1/2 rolling pins. It was SO yummy!!!! There was a little bit of the marshmallow taste, but I was wishing it would have been stronger.
With all those incredible flavors of vodka out there, there is no limit as to what kind of mudslide you can make!! I saw chocolate whipped vodka and thought that would have been an awesome one to try, too.
