Bushwacker Jelly Shot, looking deceptively innocent in its tiny pleated cup . . .
Those with a sweet tooth will be pleased with the Bushwacker Jelly Shot. The cocktail inspiration is, of course, the Bushwacker Cocktail. Technically, the Bushwacker isn't a dessert drink, but rather a beach or tropical libation - the unofficial cocktail of the island of St. Thomas. What makes a drink a dessert drink, anyway? If an octane rating is involved, the Bushwacker's two varieties of rum and myriad mix of liqueurs, held together with the merest smattering of mixers, likely push it well over to the "beach/tropical" genre.
