Now look here these are ADULT POPS!! Not for the kiddies or even some adults!

I remember working on Sir Richard Branson’s (Owner of Virgin Atlantic and anything Virgin) private Island (Necker Island) while living in the BVI. He was sucha sweet kindhearted gentleman.

I happened to be behind one of the bars near the pool playing bartender making a simple Virgin Piña Colada for myself, when he and one of the guests walks by waving at me. They both stopped by the bar and greeted me. They both knew that I wasn’t the bartender but knew me as the Islands Art Teacher. Well as I was putting the finishing touches to my drink they asked if I’d make one for them!!

Well, you know me…always the Artist, I said “I’ve got one drink better than this one…but if you fall over the side of the ship don’t blame me!! It’s my version of a Caribbean Drink called The Bushwacker. But be very clear this is just my recipe, everyone makes it very differently.”

Needless to say they loved it!! No one fell over the side of the boat (thank GOD) but,….they were kinda leanin’ after 3 of these!!! Lololol!!! Sir Richard only had one but thoroughly enjoyed it. He gave me a hug as usual and said “Ms NZINGHA you are a Lady with many gifts, thank you for extending yourself so graciously to me and my guest.” My response…”Thank you…now show me the moneyyyy!” We laughed (but I was serious).

This version of my recipe is missing “Frangelico” and Vanilla Extract (not common to the original drink but I add it for more dimension).
