MUDSLIDE MARTINI
TGI Friday's Copycat Recipe


One part Vanilla Vodka
One part Coffee Liqueur
One part Irish Cream
One part cream

Prepare a martini glass with a ring of Hershey's Syrup about 3/4 of the way up. Shake over ice and pour to the level of your chocolate ring.

NOTES: TGI Friday's uses Absolut Vanilla, Kahlua and Starbucks Cream. Right now I'm using Smirnoff Vanilla, Carolan's Irish Cream, and Starbucks Coffee Liqueur. You can use whole milk instead of cream just to cut down the fat the tiniest bit. Bailey's Irish Cream is a good replacement as well
