The painkiller cocktail is a drink built with rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and coconut cream!

Painkiller Cocktail Info

The Painkiller, a twist on the Pina Colada, is a fruity and rich cocktail that may not heal you 😉 The drink is made with dark Rum, pineapple juice, orange, and cream of coconut. It was first created at the Soggy Dollar Bar in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) in the 1970s. There, warm temperatures combined with vacation vibes necessitated refreshing, cold drinks. I think you can imagine a tropical beach just by the ingredients mentioned!

Pusser's Rum is a recreation of the British Royal Navy Rum distributed to sailors up until 1970. The Pusser's Rum is a superb choice for the Painkiller cocktail. Pusser's was made as a tribute to the Rum mentioned above, and it is made in the same way as the original and with the same proportions. It is blended on Tortula Island, BVI.

Pusser's trademarked the Painkiller in the 1980s. The Painkiller can be made at home with any rum, but it is best to include Pusser's Rum in the recipe. The rich rum mix is paired with coconut cream and two beautifully combined fruit juices, orange and pineapple juice! Sprinkle some fresh nutmeg over the top to add more spice and aroma.

It is simple to make the Painkiller, and it is even easier to drink it. You can mix one at the beach, in your backyard, or anywhere you feel like having a tropical vacation vibe.


A tropical dream!
