While on a recent trip to St. John, we had a few (too many??) rum and coconut cocktails called Painkillers. These cocktails were so smooth and so delicious, that we knew we needed to bring these back to the states for the BUCKFISH crew to enjoy.
The original Painkiller, which uses Pussers rum, is often called the “Official Cocktail of the British Virgin Islands”. This rum cocktail is blend of Pusser’s Rum, cream of coconut, pineapple juice, orange juice, and nutmeg served on the rocks or oftentimes frozen. The Painkiller is as potent as it is delicious.
The Original Painkiller Recipe
- 2-ounces Pusser’s Rum
- 4-ounces pineapple juice
- 1-ounce orange juice
- 1-ounce cream of coconut
- Freshly grated nutmeg
Add liquids to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into a big glass or goblet filled with ice. Grate fresh nutmeg on top.
