The original recipe from the Soggy Dollar bar calls for dark rum, Coco Lopez, Orange juice and Pineapple juice, shaken and topped with freshly grated nutmeg.

That is how I make them. Yummmy!

The painkiller is a delicious drink - here is the recipe that we use:

1 oz. cream of coconut

1 oz. orange juice

4 oz. pineapple juice

2 oz. dark rum

Mix all ingredients together, pour over ice and top with freshly grated nutmeg.

I use the same recipe as above, but I mix in terms of cans rather than ounces. Makes for an easier second (and third, and well you get the picture)

Here you go, oldbuddy. This is the best one I've tried and I've drank enough of them to float a battlship ;) I do, however, prefer Myers Dark rather than the Pusser's. ENJOY!!


A Most Famous Virgin Island Specialty

(for one drink)

1.5 oz Dark Rum

1.5 oz Orange Juice

1 oz Pineapple Juice

1 oz Coco Lopez

Fresh Nutmeg

(regular can be substituted)

Slice of Orange &/or Pineapple & Maraschino Cherry for garnish

Mix juices together in a cocktail shaker. Pour juices into a glass filled with ice. Add rum then top with a grating of fresh nutmeg (you can be pretty liberal with the nutmeg; see how much you like but it is a definite ingredient not just a garnish). Finish with a swizzle stick or straw. Painkillers are best made with Pusser's Rum and fresh nutmeg, both of which you can get here in St John. Our neighbors: St John Spice have fresh nutmeg and graters for sale.

Painkillers are, as directed here, not shaken.

Hi - all the above recipes sound great. One thing I like to add though is SPICED RUM!!! Makes it perfect.

I particularly liked the Soggy Dollar Bar "Nilla Killa". Does anyone know if it's the same recipe but just with vanilla rum?
