In 2012 I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa with coffee, powdered milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract to make MUDD, called thus due to its dark colour. Now I've found that this combination of Irish crème and MUDD is something special. ~ JF Lindner, who's favourite liqueur is Irish crème.

FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do I properly shake the ingredients for an Irish MUDD?

To properly shake the ingredients for an Irish MUDD, fill a shaker with ice and add the Bailey's, coffee liqueur, and chocolate liqueur. Secure the lid or shaker top and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This introduces air, chills, and dilutes the concoction slightly, making the drink smoother.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve an Irish MUDD?

The best way to serve an Irish MUDD is in a lowball glass, chilled. You can chill the glass beforehand by putting it in the freezer for about 5 minutes or filling it with ice water for a few moments before emptying it. Pour the shaken mix into the chilled glass. Serving it cold enhances the flavors and the drinking experience.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What are some suitable garnishes for an Irish MUDD?

Suitable garnishes for an Irish MUDD include a light dusting of cocoa powder, a few chocolate shavings, or even a small swirl of whipped cream on top. These garnishes complement the chocolate and coffee flavors within the drink, adding a touch of elegance and extra flavor.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of an Irish MUDD compare to a standard cocktail?

The alcohol content of an Irish MUDD is 17.33%, which is slightly higher than some standard cocktails which typically range around 10-15% ABV. This makes the Irish MUDD a moderately strong drink, ideal for sipping slowly to savor the rich flavors.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute any of the liqueurs in an Irish MUDD if I don't have them on hand?

Yes, you can substitute the liqueurs in an Irish MUDD though it might slightly alter the taste. If you're missing Bailey's, any Irish Cream Liqueur would suffice. For coffee liqueur, a strong cold brew coffee with a touch of sugar can provide the coffee flavor. For chocolate liqueur, consider using a chocolate syrup mixed with a bit of vodka or just the syrup for a less alcoholic version.
