The Painkiller had its start at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke and now is a staple  Virgin Island drThe World Famous Pusser's Painkiller®ink.   When vacationing on St. John I enjoy the island cocktail on the deck of Hummingbird Hill while watching the boats and ferry   shuttle  back and forth to St. Thomas.  The Drink is simple to make and enjoyable:

  • 4 ozs pineapple juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut

and your Rum options are: (I prefer 151 when available) :

  • 2 parts rum (pessimista)
  • 3 parts rum (mediocrità)
  • 4 parts rum(ottimista)

Shake or blend with ice, top with shaved fresh nutmeg and enjoy.

The Sunset at Hummingbird Hill is one you never tire of. They are never quite the same, but always enjoyable. Relax at the view of St. Thomas while the sun reflects off the Caribbean sea and sky.

The Flip video recording or pictures can’t capture the actual experience, but if gives you something to remember from your last visit or look forward to on your next. The sunset gives way to the soothing night sounds of the tree frogs.

The St. John wildlife adds to the charm of your visit to the island.  Whether seeing the cows, goats, pigs, chickens, or donkey’s roaming freely on the roadside or experiencing the soothing sounds of the tree frogs at night, the wildlife  always entertains.   For bird watchers, Hummingbird Hill’s covered deck is equipped with feeders for the beautiful  Hummingbirds and Bananaquits.  Filling the feeders is easy and quickly attracts the birds.
