One of my all-time favorite fruity rum cocktails is this rich and delicious Painkiller Cocktail! Rum, pineapple juice, orange juice and cream of coconut are shaken with ice in a cocktail shaker, strained into a glass with ice, and sprinkled with ground nutmeg for the ultimate tropical cocktail.
While at a boat show in Annapolis, MD a couple of years ago, I had the privilege of dining at Pusser’s Caribbean Grille. Believe it or not, I’d never heard of these “Painkiller drinks” until then.
Since then, I have been making these drinks throughout the summer and they’re definitely a treat, to say the least.
One thing that I need to note is I learned that Pusser’s has exclusive rights to this drink… of course that’s why I prepared it with Pusser’s Rum. I ordered this cocktail one night at a bar with friends, and a guy sitting beside me so kindly informed me of this.
Apparently he was somehow involved with Pusser’s, as he handed me a business card with the drink recipe on it (a coincidence to say the least!).
