What is Mississippi Mud?
“Mississippi Mud” has many definitions and you will probably get a different answer depending on who you ask. There was a song from the 1920’s with the name sung by Bing Crosby but also performed by other well-known singers over the years. Wow, who knew?!
Mississippi Mud also refers to the dark muddy banks of the Mississippi River. Many gooey chocolate desserts (resembling “mud”) allegedly were named after those dark muddy banks, including the popular Mississippi Mud Pie as well Missippi Mud Cake, Ice Cream, Brownies, Cookies, and more!
The Mississippi Mud desserts all seem to be ooey gooey chocolate desserts but what else they contain can vary. The versions I remember having generally also had marshmallows (or marshmallow fluff) as well as nuts (such as pecans or walnuts).
Recently while browsing through Pinterest, I ran across pins of all sorts of Mississippi Mud desserts! They all brought back great memories of living in the south. I knew the marshmallow, chocolate, and nut flavors would be a perfect combination for a Mississippi cocktail recipe!
Next thing I knew I was making this Mud Drink. :)
So to make this easy Mississippi Mud drink, I used milk (or you could use any kind of cream or even half & half), Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Pinnacle Marshmallow Vodka, Nocello (Walnut liqueur), and Hershey’s chocolate syrup.
I’m not sure if Pinnacle is still making their marshmallow vodka anymore, but you should be able to find other brands. If you can’t find any, you could try a whipped cream flavor vodka instead.
This Mississippi Mudtini is a unique chocolate martini. If you’re looking for drink recipes with marshmallow vodka, this is definitely one to try!
Once you make your Mississippi Mudtini, pour in your favorite martini glasses and top the chocolate drinks with some chocolate whipped cream and chocolate shavings or chocolate sprinkles!
I took a chocolate candy bar and used a zester/grater to get some quick chocolate shavings.
The shaker you see in the pictures is one I bought at my local TJ Maxx. I haven’t seen it since but have been looking for another. Although if you’re looking for one, Amazon has a lot of fun cocktail shakers too!
These Mississippi Mudtini drinks would be a great addition to a Chocolate Martini Bar, don’t you think?
For a Chocolate Martini Bar, put out a bunch of ingredients and glasses, and let people make their own chocolate martinis. How fun would that be?!
