While in St. Thomas, we had the BEST frozen drinks called BUSHWACKERS ! Does anyone know the original RECIPE?

I've seen them on web search with ice cream, and milk and all sorts of stuff but that just was NOT in what I am talking about! This was a frozen cocktail with alot of COCONUT RUM, IRISH CREAM, KAHLUA, AMARETTO, VODKA maybe, topped with whipped cream sprinkled with nutmeg...and we don't know the amounts of any of it. Does anyone?

You've got the right ingredients. Equal parts and blend over ice

My husband loves the bushwacker frozen drinks. I found a premix bottle made by T.I.G.F. products at my local grocer. Just mix w ice in a blender--it tastes pretty close to those in the islands.

Go with slim's suggestion. If it's not quite right..Make some changes and blend up another batch.
You'll find what you’re lookin for.
Oh, and try frangelico in the mix too πŸ™‚

When I was a bartender at the Mafolie, I got many rave reviews with this recipe:

Equal parts rum, vodka, Baily's, kahluah (sp?), amoretto, Chococo (chocalate liquer), Coco Lopez (cream of coconut), Frangelico, blend with ice, top with whipped cream, nutmeg and a cherry! Enjoy!

We use the Woody's drink recipes all the time. You can print them from their website. The Bushwacker is fantastic!

I've never been to PA, but I would select a local liquor store and have them order it, it if they don't stock it. If that's not a possibiliy, I supose you could substitute a different brand chocolate liquer. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

A true Bushwacker has no non-alcoholic ingredients. No ice cream, chocolate syrup, coco loco, etc. And if you want a USVI version, the rum must be CRUZAN! πŸ˜‰

My husband & I are also in love with Buschwackers. We've found that we prefer the Buschwackers at the Coki Beach stand above all others. A few years ago they gave us their recipe:

Equal parts of:

Coco Lopez (cream of coconut)

Blend with ice and top with nutmeg.

mmmmm! We usually put an extra shot of kahlua & baileys for an extra kick! enjoy!

Dumb question: about how much ice do you put in the blender with the equal parts liquor in the Bushwacker? Sorry! I don't usually like blended drinks, but a Bushwacker sounds really good right now! =)

that's a great question, one that i don't know the answer too. I usually just fill up the blender with booze, put some ice in and blend... if it needs more ice I'll add more.... I guess it also depends on the consistency that you like it.

Blue, our reason we didn't gain 50 lbs was because we stayed at Point Pleasant and walked EVERYWHERE. πŸ™‚ LOL We walked and walked and walked. Sweated and walked. πŸ˜‰
