Lundi: Recipes

Today's recipe is a Gulf coast favorite that most food writers agree originated in Pensacola, Florida back in the 1920s.  It’s basically a tipsy milkshake and it is one tasty treat on a hot day.  Be careful with these things, which usually go by the appropriate moniker Bushwhacker; it’s easy to forget they have all that rum in them.

3 scoops vanilla ice cream
3 oz dark rum
1 ½ oz light rum
¾ oz Kahlua
¾ ounce crème de cacao

Put the ice cream, rum, Kahlua and crème de cacao in a blender and mix thoroughly.  Add enough ice to bring the contents of your mixer within two inches of the top and blend until smooth.  Pour into two glass and share with a friend.

Some tenders top the drink off with a dash of 151 rum once it’s in the glass.  Another version of this drink is made with heavy cream rather than ice cream.  Bon appetite ~
