Yet another slushy drink question...

O.K. so now with all the slushy drink talk ,and the high temps talk, I am thinking about the best slushy drinks that I could try.

WIh thirty flavors at La Bayou and Mermaid, I am sad to say I have only ordered the mudslide. I have ordred it over, and over, and over..

It seems I have a fav drink for each casino or each area of town. Downtown it has been the mudslide, Wynn it's the strawberry.daquiri, PH lemon drop martini, Bellagio the peach bellini,and so on.

Now, I want to try different flavors of the downtown slushy, but I want to hear from those who have tried many of the flavors. Which do you like best? If it is a drink whose name does not describe the flavor please give me a clue as to the taste.

Is the mudslide an ice cream drink?

sweetsherry,

It is made with cream and ice but from the Las Vegas drink machines it doesn't contain ice creme. There are ice cream versions of the drink in some places. You can buy TGIF's mix for home use and you add ice to the blender rather than ice cream.

So I guess the answer is yes and no. It depends on who is mixing it.

It's good either way and I am not a purist on this issue!! : - >

Hey Shrink....I wonder what has happened to Pook, because she will be able to remember more than me (WELL SHE IS HALF MY AGE)!LOL

I always have the same flavor Se* on La Bayou (renamed after Se* on the Beach)

Pook likes the mudslide, and Mr. Ducky likes the Pina Colada....but they are all pretty good. IMO

They have little tiny cups for tastings if you want to try a couple before you decide for sure which one you want to order. yum

P.S. I was really kidding about the 30 flavors since I can't remember how many, but they have quite a few to choose from on their menu.

I always go for the 1/2 mudslide and 1/2 white russian with the extra shot of course!

I have no idea if there is any real Ice cream in it ( I highly doubt it though), most places order the bags of flavors and add booze. They are very tasty though, way better than ice cream.
