Happy National Rum Day!!
What better way to celebrate than with a refreshing summery cocktail. The Painkiller Cocktail is a twist on Piña Colada flavors with dark rum, pineapple, orange and coconut finished with freshly grated nutmeg on top. A classic Tiki Drink every mixologist should have in their playbook.
We’ve come to love Tiki Bars, especially when you discover them in the most unexpected places, like hidden below the bustling streets of Chicago. Three Dots and a Dash, an underground tiki speakeasy, is a must visit if you’re lucky enough to be bar hopping in Chicago!Jump to Recipe
However, we were first introduced to The Painkiller Cocktail while vacationing in Key West. There was something about the laid-back vibe and relaxed island setting that paired quite nicely with this tropical rum drink.
Sitting in a courtyard sipping Painkillers while listening to the calypso sounds from the steel drums as colorful chickens strolled by without a care in the world.
The Painkiller Cocktail is made by combining dark rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and cream of coconut in an ice filled shaker. Shake vigorously then pour into a crushed ice filled highball glass. The drink is topped with freshly grated nutmeg and garnished with fresh orange and pineapple. It is so smooth and refreshing and sure to ease you into a good mood.
No worries. No cares. Life is good. Cheers!
