This recipe for an oh-so-decadently-delicious Irish-Greek-chocolate-and-cream drink was part of an article on ouzo in the October 2005 issue of cooking magazine 'Australian Good Taste'. The article was called 'Greece Lightning' and begins: "A potent Greek spirit that has the ability to turn cloudy, ouzo can have the same effect on you - so take care not to overindulge in our delicious drinks, dessert or dressing." A cocktail? Well the ingredients suggest that but the photograph showed Chocolate Bullets served in two tall smoothie-style glasses. This is clearly not a drink for the faint-hearted! I've listed this as serving 2, but I think it could also be served in 4 cocktail glasses. The original recipe specified "chocolate topping" as the fourth ingredient; ever with a mind of its own, Zaar converted this to "chocolate fudge topping", which would I imagine be sweeter. BTW, if you're using metric measurements, 1 cup = 250 ml. From the same magazine, I have also posted Ouzo-Poached Cherries With Waffles and Watermelon & Feta Salad With Ouzo Dressing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup thickened cream
  • 12 cup Baileys Irish Cream, original Irish cream liqueur
  • 12 cup ouzo
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate fudge topping
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • whipped cream, to serve
  • grated dark chocolate, to serve


  1. Place the cream, Baileys, ouzo, chocolate topping and ice cubes in the jug of a blender and blend until well-combined and the ice is crushed.
  2. Pour the Baileys-ouzo mixture into serving glasses, top with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle of chocolate, and serve immediately.

I didn't have 1/2 cup Ouzo left in the bottle it was only about 1/3 cup, not sure what you meant by "thickened cream" I used unwhipped 35% whipping cream, this is an extremely rich filling drink that is absolutely heavenly and would definately make again for the upcoming holidays, thanks for sharing bluemoon!

Definitely considered an upscale mudslide by us. We made as directed without the whipped cream and shavings on top. I love Ouzo but this was Buddha's first time trying it. He loved it. We will definitely be making this drink again. :)
