Bourbon Heath Mudslide

literally three of my favorite words, each in their own right...looking at the three side by side is almost too much to take. This drink was ridiculous. I wish I could somehow properly parlay my thoughts on this to words, yet somehow they evade me...Just do what you can to make this asap, especially if your name is Ashley and you love bourbon as much as I do, I posted this recipe especially for you, madame!

I was in Harris Teeter the other day and stumbled upon this:



You have got to be kidding me?!?! I literally did a neck snap in the middle of the aisle, it was as if the people who work at High Road sincerely cared about my well being and want only for me to be happy. How sweet of them and how delightful of HT to have them on sale, buy one, get one, Yay day for me!

I raced home and dove into this as quickly as I could and it was divine, divine I tell you! But...b/c I am me, I had to see what other step I could take this to. I looked and discovered I had some heath bar pieces and some caramel ice cream syrup and of course...bourbon and whipped cream vodka and thus was born, my hands down favorite(at least to date) mudslide.

Ingredients
1 cup ice cream
1 1/2 oz bourbon
1 oz whipped cream vodka
1 oz bailey's
smattering of heath bar pieces
1/2 cup ice
2 oz caramel ice cream topping
place all ingredients in blender and blend to desired consistency

Obviously you may not find this ice cream readily, I would think you could use any caramel based ice cream and get a similar delicious treat. Have at it! 

and the second time I made this...I topped it w/bourbon whipped cream. I combined 1 tbsp of cheesecake pudding(dry mix) and a tbsp of bourbon, mixed them together and let sit in fridge for a few minutes. I whipped half a cup of heavy whipping cream till it started to thicken and added the pudding mixture, beat till very thick. Oh. my. goodness. It was like a bourbon cheesecake mousse. I used it as the filling in my red velvet whoopie pies last time. Yum.
