After a long hard week at work I needed something soothing and gentle in my glass. The Painkiller is all of that.
According to Beachbum Berry this cocktail was created in 1971 at the Soggy Dollar Bar on the island of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Clearly a riff on a Pina Colada.
The bar is still there - and reopened after hurricane devastation earlier in 2018.
It's not a cocktail that blows your mind but a nice soothing mix even thousand of miles from the Caribbean.
- 3.5 cl overproof dark rum - I used Plantation O.F.T.D
- 3.5 cl golden rum - I used Appleton Estate Signature Blend
- 3 cl fresh orange juice
- 3 cl Coco Lopez coconut cream
- 12 cl fresh pineapple juice
Measure everything into a shaker, fill the shaker with ice, shake well and pour unstrained into a large glass or a favorite tiki mug. Grate nutmeg over the top, garnish with orange slice, cinnamon stick and perhaps a homemade cocktail cherry.
