  1. If using a stand-up drink mixer, combine all ingredients in the tin and buzz for about 5”.
  2. If using a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a single standard ice cube until the cube melts and the drink takes on a milkshake-like texture.
  3. Pour into a fizz glass.
  4. Garnish with a dusting of cinnamon and espresso and a mint sprig.

A chocolate Mudslide twist

Our classic Mudslide recipe calls for coffee liqueur but if a chocolate shake is what you’re after, simply swap it out for chocolate liquid, Mississippi Mudslide style. Go to town with chocolate cream, chocolate sprinkles and a flake garnish for extra sweetness. There’s no such thing as too much.

How to make a frozen Mudslide with ice cream

Want it extra chilled and extra creamy? Whizz together a round of frozen Mudslides. It’s a cocktail meets dessert, the ultimate mix for a hot summer’s evening. Swap cream for vanilla ice cream – you won’t regret it.

The ultimate Christmas drink

Move over Eggnog. The Mudslide is this season’s best festive drink. Make it extra chocolatey, extra creamy or extra Christmasy – it’s yours for the tasting. Go nuts with a chopped hazelnut topping and blend of Nutella. Sprinkle over Oreos and whizz in some cookie cream. Drizzle over salted caramel sauce or combine chocolate and coffee for a mocha flavoured mix. There’s plenty of ways to make this cocktail your own.
