The Painkiller cocktail is like a piña colada…but better! This tropical pineapple drink features aged rum, cream of coconut and orange.


  • 2 1/2 ounces* aged rum (Pusser’s Rum is traditional)
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce cream of coconut (not coconut cream! here’s why.)
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice!)
  • For the garnish: grated nutmeg, cocktail cherry


  1. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice.
  2. Stain into an ice-filled highball or hurricane glass. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg and a cocktail cherry. 


*To convert to tablespoons, multiply the ounces by 2 (1/2 ounce = 1 tablespoon).
