Bushwacker… the ultimate beach drink

Skip to Bushwacker recipe

I can’t tell you how many of these I sipped on the beach at St. Thomas (where they were invented by the way)… SO DELICIOUS.  The only problem you think you’re just drinking a milkshake…until you stand up. But you’re on the beach, right?… who cares?

Seriously, though, this is one of the tastiest drinks I’ve had in a while (and I don’t like blended drinks generally)… and it took me a least 3 to figure out it had nutmeg in it.  YUMMY.

Ingredients (one drink, just multiply for multiple drinks):

  • 1/2 ounce rum(Cruzan is the best, but use whatever brand you have)
  • 1/2 ounce vodka (any brand)
  • 1/2 ounce Bailey’s Irish cream (or a similar cheaper brand)
  • 1/2 ounce Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce amaretto liqueur (any brand)
  • 1/2 ounce chocolate-flavored liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce Frangelico (optional)
  • 1/2 ounce creme de coconut (Coco Lopez)
  • 1 cup crushed ice (more or less to make the proper consistency)
  • 3 dashes of grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon whipped cream (or coolwhip)
  • 1 maraschino cherry (for the top)
What you’ll have to clean up after:
  • Blender

Step One: Put everything (except nutmeg, whipped cream and cherry) into a blender and blend, using enough ice to yield a milkshake consistency.

Step Two: Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream, cherry, and a couple dashes of nutmeg.
