30 Days of Pinterest-Day 5: Frozen Mudslides

Or in my case...not so frozen mudslides.  Here's the recipe I pinned and the look I was going for:


Frozen Mudslide recipeOne serving: 2 oz vodka2 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur2 oz Bailey’s® Irish cream6 oz vanilla ice creamBlend alcohol with ice-cream. Serve in a frosted hurricane glass and watch the world pass by.
 See it looks so nice and frozen, like a Wendy's Frosty consistency.  

Here's mine:  Much more frothy than frosty.

Honestly, with that much booze added to ice cream, I don't know how it could be anything but liquid.  The recipe calls for 2 oz each of Bailey's Irish Cream, Kahlua, and vodka blended with 6 oz vanilla ice cream. I used an immersion blender.  I think you're going to have to add ice to get this frozen because the alcohol content combined with blending quickly melts the ice cream.

Here's another version from that I have not tried. It calls for ice instead of ice cream. I think this has excellent potential, and I think a combo of ice and ice cream would be best.

At any rate, the flavor is excellent and I should be asleep in no time tonight if I drink much of this is strong.
