Caramel Mudslide Cocktail

Mmm…Bailey’s.  Yep, I went out and bought a bottle of Bailey’s for a cup of hot chocolate the other night because it was soo cold out!  There are a million other delicious ways to drink Bailey’s too!  Two of my favorites are mudslides and blind russians.  A blind Russian is vodka, Kahlua, and Bailey’s, and a mudslide is the same plus cream.  I used caramel coffee creamer to add flavor…I must confess that I added a spoonful of salted caramel sauce as well.  I love caramel!

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlua
  • 1 oz Bailey’s
  • 2 oz Cream

Pour in a shaker with ice, shake, and pour in a small tumbler or rocks glass over ice.  It’s that easy.

Salted Caramel Latte

I am not functional without caffeine.  I can (and have) had coffee-less days, but they are a rarity.  It’s true that I find my eyelids feeling heavier and heavier mid day and need a little energy boost, but that aside, I really do love the taste of coffee and espresso.  This salted caramel latte is delicious, and it won’t require you to stop out of your way and pay $5!

  • 1 Tbsp salted caramel
  • 3/4 cup cold milk (I used 1%)
  • 1/4 cup caramel macchiato coffee creamer
  • 2 shots of espresso
  1. Mix milk and coffee creamer in a cup and place in freezer for a few minutes so that it is very cold.  This makes the steaming process much easier!
  2. Brew espresso (2 shots) and pour in a glass.
  3. Add salted caramel sauce and stir.
  4. Steam the milk mixture and pour over espresso.  Use a spoon to get the last bits of foam if you have to, it’s worth it!
