History of the Bushwacker Cocktail

This is an excellent chilled cocktail with it's roots in St. Thomas, however nobody seems to really know what bar was the originator. This is a really decadent cocktail with certain resemblance to a Pina Colada Cocktail or even a Mudslide Cocktail. There is a bar known as "Sandshakers" in Pensacola, Florida that states to be the home of the initial Bushwacker, however they admit that the recipes came to them in 1975 as the then owner been to Sapphire Beach on the eastern side of St. Thomas and also there he drank the Bushwacker and brought it back to try out on his clients at "Sandshakers" .
