Peppermint Mudslide

We love a good boozy milkshake, and this alcoholic milkshake recipe will both get you into the holiday spirit and satisfy your sweet tooth all at the same time. The mudslide is one of our favorite cocktails, and this version is such a fun twist, perfect for a holiday party, or just to celebrate the season.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it-

Peppermint Mudslide Ingredients:

  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • ½ ounce peppermint schnapps
  • 2 ounces of Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur
  • 1 ounce Kahlua coffee liqueur
  • Whipped cream for topping
  • Chocolate syrup for topping
  • ¼ cup crushed candy canes (or crushed peppermint), for topping

Substitutions:

Liquor– If you aren’t a peppermint schnapps fan, you can swap the vodka and schnapps for a really nice peppermint vodka. Smirnoff sells one, and Pinnacle has a peppermint bark vodka that is divine!

Ice Cream– You can use any ice cream flavor you love in this shake! Traditionally, vanilla is used for a frozen mudslide, but chocolate, or any flavor really, would be delicious.

Cream Liqueurs– You can sub or swap these as you like. Traditionally, a mudslide has Baileys and Kahlua, but we are also huge Rumchata fans, you can really use whatever you have, or whatever is your favorite!

Peppermint Mudslide Directions:

Step 1: To your blender, add vanilla ice cream, vodka, peppermint schnapps, Baileys, and Kahlua. Blend until smooth.

Step 2: Take your milkshake or cocktail glass and add a swirl of chocolate sauce around the inside of the glass.

Step 3: Pour the blended mudslide into the glass.

Step 4: Top with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, and crushed candy canes, if desired.

Tips:

  • Peppermint schnapps can be pretty strong! You want to add just a little, the 1/2 oz. or even 1/4 oz., do a taste test, and if you want more peppermint flavor, add just a small splash more and blend.
  • To crush your peppermint candy, add them to a gallon zip-top bag and crush them with a heavy rolling pin. Or, you can purchase crushed candy canes from Brach’s during the holiday season.
