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.
