Party Panache, Strawberries & Cream Bushwacker

We enjoyed a taste of summer on the coast last weekend, Saturday was warm and sunny and was spent boating and swimming

HHjr was head chef all weekend,

which gave me time to play with flowers

and paint with CC

“Now that I’m 6 Gigi, I’m old enough to wear lipstick!”

she announced

{we’re going to have to work on application 😂}

“Your lipstick matches the tulips!”  I told her…

We capped off our Spring Break fun with a dangerously delicious cocktail

A strawberries & Cream Bushwacker

Bushwackers are the local favorite cocktail on the Gulf coast

The recipes vary,

the best description is an adult milkshake

It’s cold, creamy, and strong

made with coconut rum or vodka

Irish Creme, Kahula

This recipe is very simple

You can mix the Bailey’s Strawberries and Cream

with vodka or milk or softened vanilla ice cream {swoon}

And of course, you could enjoy it all by itself on the rocks

  1. Jenna, CC is so adorable with her sweet painted lips. I know you enjoy her so much. I need to order the strawberry tray, love it! It is almost time for me to go pick strawberries and I can’t wait! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Happy Sunday!

  2. Rita C. says:

    Yum, that’s a cool twist on a White Russian, which I love.
    CC is an absolute doll. Oh dear, lipstick at 6! Watch out, HHJr!

    • She LOVES makeup and always wants to look at mine, so I gave her a lipstick that she keeps at my house and can use when shes here…goes straight for it every time!

  3. Yum, I saw that strawberry Baileys a couple weeks ago and kind of veered to the right… Might have to stop back:@)

  4. It looks fresh and springy! And what a delightful companion. We’ll get to that point but I love living it vicariously through you!It looks fresh and springy!

    OMGoodness. Everything looks yummy. When I am in Orange Beach there are 2 places I have to go – Tacky Jacks for a Bushwhacker and Cafe Beignet. Your granddaughter is adorable. Have a great weekend.

    I must try the strawberry cheesecake parfait! Great for guests who can have a little dessert anytime they want it. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. Great photos!

    Like you, I have to use ice cream in a drink recipe that calls for milk or cream. The Bushwacker sounds pretty darned good.

  8. Nancy says:

    Oh oh oh! This is going to be added to my Spring Cocktails List! The neighbor ladies are going to love this!

  9. Nancy says:

    Oh and your little granddaughter with her lipstick… so precious!

    Looks like a fun weekend!

  11. Bonnie Morgan says:

    Jenna, you are a fun Gigi! How wonderful to have a grandmother to paint with and get to wear lipstick.CC looks like a happy child!
    Glad you had fun at the coast. Nice to get away. It’s a different world there.

  12. Kitty says:

    CC is just a doll baby, and I love her painted lips.
    What in the world??? I so have never seen the Bailey’s Strawberry and Cream!! I always learn from you, Jenna! That drink sounds right up my alley.

  13. Karen says:

    Sounds great…I think I would have mine with softened vanilla ice cream for dessert.

  14. Benita says:

    CC is adorable! Our 9 year old grand wants to wear all sorts of make-up. She thinks she’s 20…LOL Now I want a bushwacker and a trip to the Flora Bama…haven’t been in years, but it was always fun! Hugs!

    • There’s a new place now across the street called the Flora Bama Yacht Club, which is a funny name because the place is a shack with tables in the sand, but it’s the new hot spot during the day…my kids spent a lot of time there that weekend!

  15. Jodi says:

    Yum! And CC is SOO beautiful! Looks like her grandma <3

    How sweet your little CC is and oh the fun you two will have painting together. Glad you had help from the chef so you could enjoy the nice weekend. I’m sure the grands will be counting the days until all of your are back at the Bech. The drink sounds so delicious……….
