How to make a Painkiller


This cocktail comes to us from the British Virgin Islands and the year 1971. 

Daphne Henderson is the creator of this favorite rum cocktail, she was the proprietor of the Soggy Dollar Bar which got its name due to the face that there were no docks leading to the bar. Boaters would have to drive their boats in and jump off and into the shallow waters. Their pockets would get wet and so would their money. Thus the Soggy Dollar Bar was given its name. 

 

Take a double rocks glass and fill it with ice. 
Take your Barfly shaker and put a few ice cubes inside. 
Add 2 ounces of aged rum to the shaker
Add 1 ounce of orange juice
Add 1 ounce of Pineapple juice 
Add 1/2 ounce of cream of coconut 
Shake the drink together 
Strain over your double rocks glass with fresh ice
Add a little nutmeg to the top of the drink 
Add your favorite garnish (we used a thick orange slice)
And enjoy! 

We think you’ll love this rum cocktail, the Painkiller.
