Low Carb Mudslide Cocktail Recipe


Mudslides are delicious, creamy cocktails - and are also chock full of sugar. The sole reason they are high sugar is the Kahlua. Here is a way to make a mudslide cocktail without all of the extra sugar and carbs you would normally find in the drink.

First off, what is a mudslide? The basic recipe for a mudslide is -

1/2 ounce Vodka
1/2 ounce Kahlua
1/4 ounce Irish Cream liqueur

So, let's take this step by step.

First, the vodka. Vodka isn't a problem, it is straight alcohol. That is zero carbs.

The Kahlua IS a problem. Kahlua is a Mexican liquor that tastes like coffee. Kahlua has a massive 17g of carbs per 1oz shot. That's like downing liquid sugar! Here's the solution. A recipe for homemade low carb Kahlua is coffee, sugar, vanilla, vodka and brandy. We can use Splenda for sugar. Brandy and vodka are both 0g carbs. Vanilla is pretty much 0g at the amounts used. So is coffee.

To make the Kahlua, use:

1/4 cup STRONG brewed coffee
1/4 cup Splenda
1 tsp vanilla
4oz vodka
4oz brandy

Mix the coffee, Splenda and vanilla, then cool down to room temperature and add in the alcohols. The total is pretty much zero carbs.

Irish Cream liqueur - i.e. Bailey's Irish Cream - is about 5.5g per ounce. So at 1/4oz, that's only about 1g of carbs. For me that's not worth fighting with, I can deal with my entire drink being 1g of carbs. If you really want to take a shot at making your own low carb Irish Cream, be my guest!

Shake all well with crushed ice, and strain into a glass!
