Green Mint Chip Mudslide

Pin It

Confession time.... I don't like downing Irish Car Bombs.  I can never chug them fast enough, & most of you all probably know what happens if they are not chugged properly.  It's isn't pretty.
I pretty much gag on all whiskey and scotch.
But Irish Cream?
You could could say that Bailey's & I get along well.  And one of my favorite drinks to make with Bailey's is a creamy mudslide...

Traditionally frozen mudslides are made with vanilla ice cream, but I wanted to give this spiked milkshake a St. Patrick's Day twist by using mint chocolate chip ice cream instead.
I also gave it a little extra chocolate kick by using chocolate vodka instead of plain vodka. 
This Green Mint Chip Mudslide is green, Irish (ahem... Bailey's), and creamy & delicious... Much better than doing shots of whiskey if you ask me... ;)
