My girlfriends new favorite drink (help!)

My girlfriend went to a party on the 16th with her sister in texas. While there, they got a drink from the girl mixing up the drinks. They don't remember the name of it, how much of each ingrediant the woman told them about, but they remember the ingredients.

It's got:

Boones farm (apple wine?)
buttershots liqueur (dekuyper)
apple juice
cherry juice
coconut rum

my girlfriend wanted me to try to make it into a simple syrup to make ice cream. Just one problem....I got no idea the name of the drink or how it was made. Does anyone know this drink? She was in eastern texas not sure if it's a regional thing. I have been digging through drink recipe sites ever since she went back to her sisters and called me telling me about it. Any help be wonderful. Thanks in advance.

    Grendal, you might want to try the "spirits" board. It sounds awfully sweet so the ice cream topping thing might be appropos.

      no, it's not a topping...she wants me to turn it into a simple syrup and make it into an ice cream flavor using the 2 tin cans trick.

        unfortunately the party was held at a residence, and they weren't the one mixing the drinks. That was the first thing I tried.

        Boone's Farm??? They still make that stuff? That's what we used to drink 35 years ago when I was in college. It wasn't very good; very, very sweet. You're probabaly looking for Boone's Farms Annie GreenSprings Good luck, it might make a good ice cream base

          might be, I've never seen boone's farm around here.

          Similar, to some degree, to one variety of a Bahama Mama but I've never seen anything exactly like what you describe. Looks like someone's home made concoction.
          Try searching this site:
          http://www.barnonedrinks.com/
          for some ideas on how you might approach this one. It has hundreds of drink formulas and I'm sure you'll find something that is close enough to provide you with a hint on the ratio of ingredients that might be used in the drink your friend described.

            I've never seen or heard of anything exactly like it either. Going to have a lot of experimenting to do I guess.
