After one sip, you’ll be screaming for more.

The Bushwacker is a fun, decadent drink that is like a chocolate Pina Colada. We’re not just talking chocolate either. No, this frozen cocktail is full of sweet stuff including delicious dark rum, killer-coffee Kahlua and captivating coconut that mix with the creme de cacao for one of the best blended drinks out there. Some recipes you find for the Bushwacker may call for Pina Colada mix, but just as in that drink I highly recommend avoiding that short cut, it is not worth it.

Bushwacker Recipe

  • 4 oz cream of coconut
  • 2 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
  • 1 oz Dark Rum
  • 1 oz Dark Creme de Cacao
  • 4 oz milk

Combine ingredients with two cups of ice in a blender. Blend until smooth, and serve up in two 12 oz cups. Raise glass and toast.

This is a photo of my drinking one hell of a Bushwacker at Miss Lucy’s on St. John. It tasted even better than it looked! You have to go try one when on island!

Let me know if you’ve tasted this popular island drink.
