Painkiller Cocktail

New! You can now save recipes. It's free!

A veritable vacation in a glass, this just-sweet-enough cocktail goes down very easily. Created in the 1970s at the Soggy Dollar Bar in British Virgin Islands, the Painkiller lives up to its name, delivering plenty of booze in a frothy, nutmeg-dusted package. 

Pro tip: ingredients can be doubled and shaken in the same cocktail shaker for 2 drinks! Any more than 2 drinks should be done in batches, with fresh ice.

Looking for a way to use up the rest of that pineapple juice? Our Dole Whip Mimosas are a brunch staple.
