Butterbeer Mudslide


My "knock off" version

As I've previously alluded to outright stated, I love reading. I do it whenever I have a free moment and I will read a myriad of topics and authors. And I love me some Harry Potter. Thus... this blog entry.

A few years ago my friend Theresa and her friend Margareth and I were able to take a trip to Universal Studios to meander our way through this place.

It is literally as if you are there.

T and I drinking our butterbeer. Delish.

Lovin it
so, so good and frothy
We had so. much. fun, I cannot fully express just how much. It was my 31st birthday and I remember seeing all these little kids milling about and thinking "Please leave, y'all weren't even born when these books were first written.". Haha please feel free not to mention that these were intended for tweens. Wrong answer! ;) I am pretty sure I called Wiki 4300 times that day or somewhere close. He finally became exasperated and asked me to let him work. Humph. The nerve. haha Needless to say...I enjoyed myself mightily.

Anyways, T recently celebrated the entrance to her greatest decade yet, her 30's. Yup. So I decided I needed to throw a Harry Potter themed party, why the heck not I ask you, why the heck not?! 

First up was Butterbeer and I decided to conquer it in two separate ways, my usual go to mudslide and a trifle. Today is the mudslide version. It is not what you get at Universal, nor will I delude myself pretend it to be. But mine had whipped cream vodka. Soooooo.



Ingredients
2 cups caramel macchiato ice cream(or any caramel/butterscotch ice cream)
1 cup vanilla ice cream
1/2 pack butterscotch pudding(dry) or 3 tbsp butterscotch ice cream topping
1/2 cup vanilla cream soda(poured out foam)
1 1/2 oz Kahlua
1 1/2 oz bailey's 
1 oz whipped/vanilla vodka
1 cup ice

put all ingredients into blender and blend to desired consistency, makes 2(ish)  mudslides

optional whip cream recipe,
I had some left over that I had in fridge and the next day added more ice and re-blended. I decided it needed whip cream and here's what I did.

1/2 cup cold heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp butterscotch pudding(left over from previous nite)
1 tbsp vanilla cream soda

whip on low for one minute and then on high speed until stiff peaks begin to form.
This is another recipe you can play around with to make it closer to what you prefer.

Bottoms up!
