Sandshaker Bushwacker

The Sandshaker was a legend on Pensacola Beach, and it's signature drink started a festival there on the island. The government closed the bar and auctioned it off, but the drink remains a legend, and the festival lives on...complete with live music from vintage bands. I got this recipe from the bartender at the Sandshaker after they closed. Yum!!

Wow BreezerMom, so glad to see this posted. I drank more than my fair share of Bushwackers at the Sandshaker back in the day. Looking forward to making these at home. So cool that you could get the actual recipe from the bartender. Oh, for the good ole days :)

As a Pensacola native I can tell you this drink is delicious and legendary! Breezermom, I'm confused why you think the Sandshaker was closed, but you will be happy to know it did not and is still at it's original location, making the bushwhackers we all know and love.
