Bushwacker Cocktail, Chocolate and nuts


With Easter upon us, we wanted to create something different celebrating both chocolate and our Hazelnut Vodka. Initially we started using the Hazelnut Alexander as a base, but research took across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and USA where we found the Bushwacker.

A Bushwacker can refer to a person who wanders off the path in the woods, to forge their own. It could be why this cocktail has taken on the name, as everyone will have their own variation, as there are no rules in how it is made.

It is a novelty milky-sweet cocktail, both rich and chocolaty resembling another tropical favourite, the piña colada. However, instead of citrusy notes from coconut and pineapple, Bushwackers often steer to the nut, chocolate and coffee side of spirits. It is unsophisticated, self-indulgent and dangerously potent, enjoyed as an after-dinner drink.

Note the image is of a sophiscated version using Coupe glasses.

Ease of Making: Easy, amend quantities as needed.
