Eggnog Mudslide

I have to admit that I did not grow up a fan of eggnog. at all. maybe even the largest understatement of the month. And like most things I have discovered I may like a little bit, the mister is the one who turned me on to the yumminess of eggynoggy. Don't you just love it when people make all their words end in a y;) me neither.

Anyways, I still do not go out of my way to indulge in this treat, but I do like it when mixed with other flavors. and by flavors I mean bourbon. or kahlua or bailey's. or cream cheese. or pudding. or ice cream. You getting the picture now? Needless to say, the ingredients that make up this concoction end up with me being a very large of fan of this version of eggnog!

You can make this ten ways till Sunday and after I give you the rundown on how easy this is, I have a few other versions you may want to try out. and yea, does anyone even know the origin of the term "ten ways to Sunday?" I know where I am going when I am done. Wikipedia here I come.

Ingredients(makes 2 mudslides)
1 cup eggnog ice cream
1 oz eggnog
1 oz bailey's
1 oz kahlua
1/2 cup ice

Blend till desired consistency.

ok, here are a few different ways that you can make this. If you wanted this to be a kid friendly shake, just use non alcoholic eggnog  and add a little chocolate sauce. blend. If you can't find eggnog ice cream, vanilla would work just fine, you may just need to add a little more eggnog. I found gingerbread kahlua and let's just say.....oh, it was love at first sip! Yum. You could also make a non frozen version by using 3 oz eggnog, 1 oz kahlua and 1 oz bailey's. Shake vigorously over ice and strain into glass.

Now do yourself a favor and make this!
