In many ways, the mudslide and the white Russian are alike. In the mudslide, Irish cream is substituted for the usual dairy cream in lieu of vodka. Both are tasty vodka lowballs. There is also a bit more potency to it, which gives it a lighter touch. However, Kahlúa is the most commonly used coffee liqueur and Baileys is the most popular Irish cream.
Mudslides can also be enjoyed either on the rocks or whipped into a creamy milkshake as an alternative to either beverage. Each of these taste deliciously sweet and easy to make and are made with vodka, coffee, and cream. It is possible to make the mudslide without vodka as well as on the rocks or in a blended version. Some white Russian cocktails are also blended with milk or cream, so they have similarities to the white Russian, which has led to frequent confusion between the two drinks.
- The addition of flavors to the mudslide makes the experience even more enjoyable.
- Pick a chocolate, raspberry, or espresso-flavored vodka for the sweetest and tastiest result.
- A simple way to improve this simple drink is to pour it over fresh ice.
- You can also make your vodka and keep it at a cool temperature when you make it by keeping it in the freezer. It is possible to double up on the cream in certain mudslides.
- Pour 1 ounce of Irish cream liqueur and 1 1/2 ounces of heavy cream into the glass to make the drink extra creamy. You can also add about 1/2 cup of ice to a special dessert recipe if you replace the dark milk or cream with vanilla ice cream.
