Adirondack Mudslide - the drink that started it all

First, we'd like to apologize to all of you Bing and Google searchers who were searching in earnest for information about Hurricane Irene and its plight on the Adirondack Region and ended up at our Happy Hour in the High Peaks blog. However, you didn't have to go to our site, but you just couldn't help yourselves, could you?

If you're "hunkered down" for the day (have you ever heard that term so over-used as during this storm), you might be wondering what to do, like we are. We have been discussing the selection of an appropriate drink for today and remembered the Adirondack Mudslide, the drink that started it all. Pam made a variation of the mudslide for some guests long before the book/blog, and wondered later how she could get that drink on the Internet. Thus Happy Hour in the High Peaks was born (for the full story, see our interview on The Free George).

1 oz chocolate hazelnut liqueur
1 oz irish creme liqueur
