Mud Slide from Scratch

There are lots of mud slide mixers on the market where the liquor is already added or you add the liquor. Most of them are fairly nasty tasting. I have had some in a bar, that were also horrible. It was nothing more than whole milk with a dash of chocolate syrup and watered down with ice.

Nothing is better than a home made one that you made from scratch. And the best part is, you can adjust the liquor.

by the glass;
1 oz vodka
1 oz Kahlua
1 oz Bailey’s Oringal Irish Cream

Fill mixing glass with ice
Add vodka, Kahlua and Bailey’s
Strain into a chilled 6 oz glass

If you can get your hands on some vanilla ice cream and a blender, put in a scoop of ice cream and the ingredients shown above plus…… put in 1 oz of Godiva dark chocolate liquor. Coat the glass with Hershey’s chocolate syrup before pouring the contents of the blender in the glass.

If you want to make it really exotic, after making it with ice cream and all the ingredients above, while you have it in the blender, toss in a small York Peppermint Patty candy. What a dessert drink this makes!

Peach Alexander

In the summer fresh peaches are plentiful on roadside produce stands. Here is a way to use some of those fresh peaches in a tasty dessert drink.

1/2 peach, pared, pitted and chopped.
1 1/2 oz of Half-and-Half
1 oz of peach schnapps
1/2 oz of white creme de cacao

Combine peach, Half-and-Half, peach schnapps, white creme de cacao and 3 oz of crushed ice in a blender. Blend until smooth and pour in an 8 oz glass.

Alternates and short cuts;
Put the fresh peaches in boiling water for 1 minute. Skins will slide of the peaches.

This receipe one is best with 1 large scoop of vanilla or peach ice cream, but on a boat, there is not much of a chance of keeping ice cream, unless you have some room in your icemaker.

If you don’t have white creme de cacao, you can use brown.
A great subsitute is Godiva chocolate liquor. It comes in white chocolate and dark
