    Strawberry BBC Drink is made from fresh strawberries, banana, Bailey’s and coconut make my FAVORITE frozen cocktail.

    Traditionally, a BBC cocktail is a tropical drink made of banana, Bailey’s and coconut (cream of coconut), but magical things happen when you add strawberry.

    While on our honeymoon in St. Lucia, the resort bartender, Peter, turned me onto a new frozen beverage called the called the “Peter Special”. Upon leaving I asked him for the recipe.

    He did not give me the recipe, but he did say it was commonly called a BBC drink, Banana, Bailey’s and Coconut, plus his special ingredient of strawberry!

    I can’t tell you what a magical vacation this was. I was a little concerned that staying on a resort would prevent us from actually seeing the culture, but the excursions were excellent.

    The beaches at the resort were fabulous. I made sure I had all of my beach essentials. 

    The Pitons, twin peaks famous on the island and the muse for the local beer.

    We took an off-the-beaten path tour, ate authentic foods prepared in the rainforest, toured volcanos, came across some serious pirates that I’m pretty certain our boat captain (if you can call the person operating an 8 person outboard a “captain”) gave a bag of marijuana and caught a 250 pound marlin.

    Memories that would last a lifetime!

    Well, hubby did. I was too seasick in the 10 foot waves to care.

    Before we knew what was in the Peter Special, also known as a Strawberry BBC drink, I was never hungry and I couldn’t figure out why. I am ALWAYS ready to eat!

    After we finally asked about the preparation, I realized I had quite literally been drinking a bunch of bananas and a couple pounds of strawberries nearly everyday.

    No wonder I was full, my Strawberry BBCs were giving me enough fruit for a whole week.

    The day after we returned to Baltimore, I bought myself a high powered blender and made myself a strawberry BBC cocktail nearly every single day after work. I mean, I do get my daily dose of fruit, right?

    Now (I’m updating this 6 years later), the Strawberry BBC is STILL my favorite blended drink and no one had come close to matching the Peter Special, not even me. I hope you are doing well out there, Peter!

    Tools for making a Strawberry BBC:

    Blender– don’t skimp on a blender, especially if you plan to make frozen drinks. You need something high powered to get ice into slush.

    You can use it for other things as well like making sauces and salad dressings, smoothie bowls, mayonnaise, hollandaise sauce and much more!

    Strawberry Huller– I never thought I needed one until I got one. Now I can’t love without it.
