    Josh Dubois: Hi! I am Josh Dubois. Today, we are making vodka drinks, and right now I am going to show you how to make a Mudslide, and this is a really, really delicious drink that kind of tastes like a milkshake.

    So, what you are going to want to do is you are going to take your mixing glass, fill it up with ice. Now, dont go all the way to the top, because you are going to be serving it in a rocks glass, and we are going to be actually dumping all of the ice in with it.

    So, the first thing that you are going to do is you are going to take two ounces of vodka or a four count or one shot. Then you are going to take one ounce of Kahlua, one, two. Now, the key ingredients thats the Irish crme liquor, you are going to put one ounce in there, one, two.

    Next, you are going to top up the drink with just about an ounce of half and half or creamer or milk, whatever you like and then you are you going to put it, tap it with the shaker tin, flip it upside down and shake.

    You dont have to go all out like you are shaking a martini or anything, and then take that off. Pour your Mudslide right in. Serve it with a straw and there you go, theres your Mudslide.

    Next, we are going to be making a Melon Ball.
