The Painkiller Cocktail is a classic tiki-style drink that has been enjoyed around the world for decades. It was first created in the 1970s at Pusser’s Rum Bar on the British Virgin Islands, and since then it has become a popular choice for beachgoers and tiki bar aficionados alike.
The Painkiller Cocktail is a simple yet delicious concoction that’s made with four basic ingredients – dark rum, pineapple juice, orange juice and coconut cream. The combination of sweet and tart flavors make it a refreshing treat that’s perfect for a hot summer day or a Caribbean beach vacation.
When making a Painkiller Cocktail, it’s important to use the right ingredients and tools. Start with a good quality dark rum, such as Mount Gay Eclipse or Appleton Estate. You’ll also need fresh pineapple juice, fresh orange juice and a can of cream of coconut. Combine the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.
Once the cocktail is chilled, pour it into a collins glass and add a splash of nutmeg for garnish. If you want to get fancy, you can also garnish with a pineapple wedge, an orange wheel and a maraschino cherry.
For the perfect Painkiller Cocktail, it’s important to use the right kind of ice. Crushed ice is best, as it will help keep the drink cold, as well as give it a creamy texture.
