Red Velvet Mudslide

If there is one drink that I am known for making (other than anything involving bourbon!) it is probably a mudslide. I've made a caramel one, a butterbeer one and the list could go on. It is pretty much one of my favorites. This particular version I made the first time a few years ago. After a few go rounds, I think I have perfected it. 

Or at least perfected it to my taste...and isn't that what matters;)

I figured that Valentine's was the perfect time to debut the final go round. or really, 365 days a year is probably just as good a time as any to indulge in anything with the name red velvet it it. 

It is rather sweet and adding the baileys and kahlua do nothing to help out with this. So, if you are not a lover of the sweets, save yourself and do not attempt to drink this delicious concoction at all. 

That just means more for me!

Red Velvet Mudslide

2 large scoops Red Velvet Ice Cream

1 oz Baileys

1 oz Kahlua

1/2 oz whipped vodka

Place in a blender with a small amount of ice and blend. I have discovered that sometimes I need to add ice cream to make it thicker or add some cream (or more booze!) to make it more of a drink. 
This is soley based on your discretion and you really can't go wrong. 

Also, the second time I made this I used bourbon instead of vodka. 

All I can say is "Come to Mamma!"

and I used Ben and Jerry's red velvet.
