TGIF, Weekend Cocktail Recipe – Caribbean Bushwacker

The Caribbean Bushwacker is basically a milkshake with booze, and what could be better than that? Take some ice cream add your favorite coffee liqueur and if you are wanting something sweet add in some chocolate syrup. Feel free to play around with a few of the ingredients, why not take it up a notch and add in espresso. I think we can all agree that milkshakes are amazing, well I guess if you are lactose intolerant or a vegan then you might not agree, but hey there is always tequila.
