The Block Island Experience – Mudslides!

I recently spent a little vacation time in Block Island, RI where the island drink is the mudslide. The mudslide is a tasty frozen cocktail and although I don’t typically indulge in things that come out of the blender, when you’re on the island you just kind of go with the flow!

Look at that beach. Jealous?

So what is the mudslide, you ask? Great question.  There are a few different versions of this simple blended drink and a lot of fluff that one can adorn the drink with.  But at it’s best and most basic, the formula is a simple combination of equal parts vanilla vodka, Kahlua, and Bailey’s in a blender with ice.  Blend it up and drink it with a straw while sitting in an Adirondack chair staring at the ocean.

You can’t go wrong with the island lifestyle and while you’re on the island, you should follow the island tradition and drink mudslides!

A quick shot of the family enjoying mudslides the proper way!
