Painkiller

Painkiller cocktail with rum and cream of coconut

First invented at the Soggy Dollar Bar in the British Virgin Islands back in the 1970s, this beach drink became a mainstay in part because it didn’t require a blender like the Piña Coladas of the day. This is meant to be a fruity, drinkable cocktail, so the proportions are meant merely as a guide. Many recipes double the pineapple to lengthen the drink, and some recipes add in coconut rum or a mixture of light and dark rum.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake and strain into an ice-filled glass. Grate or sprinkle the nutmeg on top – and don’t stir; the nutmeg is used for the scent, not the flavor, so you want it to stick to the ice and pineapple foam. Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
