Virtual Holiday Potluck {Recipe: Godiva Mudslide Minitini}

Pin It
So…I kind of made a cocktail for a BRUNCH party! It was an innocent mistake, honestly. When I signed up to participate in the Virtual Holiday Potluck with some blogger friends, I failed to notice the word “BRUNCH” in the title. I just was thinking holiday… friends… chocolate… cocktails. Fun!

I’m going to just pretend that our holiday brunch was so much fun that everyone stayed until late in the afternoon, and it was THEN that I served the cocktails. Not at normal brunch time. That’s it. That’s what happened.

We have a great lineup of recipes for you to check out (see all the submissions below the recipe. Most of them very holiday BRUNCH appropriate. I hope you’ll visit all the blogs and see what tasty treats they contributed. In the meantime, here is my recipe for what I am calling a Godiva Mudslide Minitini (serve in tiny martini glasses or make a big martini by serving in normal glasses!) Enjoy!

Recipe: Godiva Mudslide Minitini

  • 2 ounces chillded Godiva Chocolate Vodka
  • 2 ounces chilled Bailey’s Irish Cream liquor
  • 1 ounce cold milk
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Chocolate Syrup
  1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into mini martini glasses. If desired, dust rim with edible glitter (found at most baking supply stores).

  1. I am not sure what I am in love with most – those beautiful pictures or the thought of having that delicious drink at a brunch. :)

  2. “So…I kind of made a cocktail for a BRUNCH party! “………..this is why I love you! haha

    this looks AMAZING!

  3. Love how festive your martini picture looks! I think we might all need one of these by the afternoon after our brunch ;)

  4. I’ll take one. Or three.


    Love Godiva, Baileys, and choc!

    I would love to go to THIS dinner party :)

  5. Oh my. Why am I never invited to real life dinner parties with this kind of menu? Amazing! :)

  6. I think this is perfect for a brunch!! Way better than a mimosa! I love the pictures, Kristen! Feels so festive and makes me look forward to the holiday season!

  7. So I kind of think this was the perfect mistake. So much more up my alley than tomato juice and vodka and that’s standard brunch fare right?

  8. Omgosh, this looks so incredible. I don’t think anyone cares that this was supposed to be brunch. I’d drink this at a brunch, for sure ;)

  9. why didn’t we really get together, I need one of these :) Oh yea many miles between us. Really not fair, this would start my day off the RIGHT way! Beautiful photos :)

  10. What a divinely decadent mistake. I just love it when that happens, don’t you? :)

  11. If mimosas and bloody marys are acceptable for brunch then I don’t see why this wouldn’t be! Cheers!

    As we say down here in the valley, “It’s 4:00 somewhere!” I could almost not listen to the Dr. and drink one of those. Yum!

  13. All I can say is…I wish it were brunchtime right now – I could sure use this! Lol, tis the busy holiday season. :-)

  14. OMG!!really amazing!!!BUNCH PARTY….perfect!!even i’m on diet now if that in my front…i hate dieting:D…

  15. Ummmm… Yes please!

  16. woah woah whoah, I would love to have one of these in my hand as I go about my blogging work this evening!

  17. Booze is completely brunch-appropriate.

    Ask anyone. :)

  18. I’m all for cocktails at brunch…especially if it involves mudslide mintinis!

  19. Oh my Yum!!!!!

  20. Please Santa, bring me a silhouette to make subway art signs, to begin with.
