One of the things I like about blogging is the camaraderie between fellow bloggers and the willingness to help each other out. Julie has helped me with more questions about blogging than I could list here. She even helped me with my move from Blogger to WordPress and designed this rad site! Do you like it? I just love the fun colors and circles! When Julie needed a couple of guest posters for her blog, I was happy to help!

One of my very favorite cocktail recipes is the Bushwacker. Now, if you live on the Alabama coast, you’re very aware of this ‘adult milkshake’. We vacation either in Destin, FL or Orange Beach, AL each year. This year we stayed in Orange Beach for a week (and enjoyed every second of it!). I even wrote a post reviewing all the restaurants we tried. To be honest, I tried to have a Bushwacker at as many of those restaurants as I could! It’s to Orange Beach what the Hurricane is to New Orleans. So really, it is like a adult milkshake, it has ice cream for heaven’s sake which makes it perfectly acceptable to have for brunch, lunch, snack especially if you’re on vacation!

The restaurant variety of the Bushwacker uses full fat ice cream. I do try to lighten it up when I can and used frozen vanilla yogurt in my recipe. Frankly, I couldn’t tell the difference. You can also leave off the Bacardi 151 topper if you don’t want it strong (but I don’t know why you would!).
