Painkiller

Often associated with Tiki cocktails, the Painkiller is a rum cocktail trademarked by Pusser’s Rum.

This cocktail was created in the 1970s by Daphne Henderson at the Soggy Dollar Bar at White Bay on the island of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands.  Supposedly there is no dock nearby, so patrons have to swim to get to the bar – hence the name Soggy Dollar.

Recipe

1.5 oz. of Pusser’s Rum
1 oz. dark rum floater
2 oz. pineapple juice
1/2 oz. cream of coconut
1/2 oz. orange juice
Grated fresh nutmeg

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice add first four ingredients and stir. Pour into cocktail glasses and top with grated nutmeg.
