The Bushwacker – Fun and indulgent! Sweet and chocolatey. A frozen boozy blast!

I needed a break from the new ‘normal’ during the pandemic and decided to head south to the British Virgin Islands. My goal was to experience and bring home some of the best exotic cocktail recipes that the BVIs had to offer. This yummy looking tropical cocktail is called a Bushwacker, and it is a sensational drink.

One day I hired a guide to take me to some of the nearby islands because I wanted to sample some of the best tasting tropical cocktails in the BVIs. My Captain Jaime suggested that I try Oceans 7 on Peter Island…..he was right!

How to make a Bushwacker

Click on the YouTube video and watch Mark make a Bushwacker.

Mark, the bartender at Peter Islands Oceans 7 makes this tropical cocktail Bushwacker by adding cream of coconut, Kahlua, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Baileys and Amaretto to a blender with ice. While blending the ingredients he drizzles a glass with chocolate syrup.

He then decides that maybe a bit more Captain Morgan would be helpful, so why not add more?!
