Guys, I’m celebrating this week. After 12 months of developing recipes for my cookbook, I am officially DONE. Yes, there will be tweaks here and there (and now I actually have to sit down and write it ?) but it is a huge relief to have all the recipes nailed down. And just in time too; the book is being photographed in two weeks! I owe a huge thanks to all my wonderful recipe testers. They have put the recipes through the wringer, so I can sleep at night knowing that they all work. With that, I’m taking a long overdue break from the kitchen this week — and, since the kids also happen to be at sleepaway camp, it feels like a right time for a cocktail. Enter the Mudslide, a trio cocktail (liquid dessert?) made from coffee liqueur, vodka and Irish cream.
Legend has it that the Mudslide was created at the Wreck Bar in the Cayman Islands. The recipe is simple: one part coffee liqueur, one part vodka, and one part Irish cream. There is no virgin Mudslide: take away the booze and the only thing you’re left with is ice. So, yes, this is a stiff drink that will make you tipsy or (in my case) fall asleep. Enjoy!
