Author Notes

Pretty much any bar you walk into in the Virgin Islands (US or British) makes a version of the Bushwhacker. I made a mission over several trips to try as many as possible and then grill the bartenders as to what they put in theirs - then I set out to make my ultimate version ... and here it is! OK now I am going to tell you this and you probably won't listen - hell, I don't listen to my own self half the time - but you only need to drink ONE. You're gonna be all - yum, milkshake! Delicious! And then think that 2 or 3 is an excellent idea ... just don't come crying to me the next day with your sore thumping head ... I warned you! (maybe we need a hangover breakfast theme?) —aargersi

What You'll Need
  • 1/4 cup Coco Lopez
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk (not low fat - this isn't going to do your diet any favors but you are only going to drink one anyway, right?)
  • 3 shots white rum
  • 3 shots Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 shot Creme de Cacao
  • 1 shot Amaretto
  • chocolate syrup
  • ice
  • fresh ground nutmeg
  1. Put the glasses that you are going to drink out of in the freezer.
  2. Put all of the booze and stuff in the blender then fill it the rest of the way with ice (not the chocolate syrup or the nutmeg) (mine is a 9 cup blender). Blend the hell out of it.
  3. Get the glass and tilt it sideways, then turn slowly while you drizzle the chocolate down the sides. Be generous (only ONE, right?)
  4. Fill 'er up with Bushwhacker, then grate some nutmeg on top.
  5. Extra points if you can drink while bobbing on a noodle in the pool!!!
