Today, I’m headed to the U.S. and British Virgin Islands for the longest double date of my life. In celebration of my romantic couples getaway, today’s international drink recipe is the “Painkiller” – the official cocktail of the British Virgin Islands!
The Painkiller is one of the most popular mixed drinks in the entire Caribbean and is traditionally concocted with Pusser’s Rum. It was first created in BVI’s Soggy Dollar Bar in the 1970s, a fun bar placed in an exotic setting, making it well worth the visit.
HOW TO MAKE A VEGAN PAINKILLER
2-4 oz. of Pusser’s Rum (or rum of your choice)
4 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. cream of coconut
1 oz. orange juice
Grated fresh nutmeg
(makes 2 servings)
- In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add first four ingredients and stir.
- Pour into cocktail glasses and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.
- For fun, garnish with a pineapple slice like Island Jay did!
