Plainkiller Cocktail Info

Sometimes the best tropical drinks appear in unexpected places. This is how you explain the Plain Killer, a Tiki-style cocktail created by Tory Miller at the Sujeo, a now-closed pan-Asian restaurant.

Fun fact: The 1980s Painkiller (father of this cocktail) was trademarked in the United States by Pusser’s Rum. Therefore, a different rum-made Painkiller can’t be called a Painkiller unless it slightly changes the original recipe in some way or changes the name.

The Plainkiller is made with a different name and a little less pineapple juice compared to the original Painkiller recipe, therefore does not infringe on the original trademark.


A Plainkiller is closely related to the Painkiller cocktail.
