Healthy(ish) Painkiller


While we fully believe that moderation is key to leading a healthy and happy lifestyle, there’s no harm in a cocktail every now and then—especially when they’re made with fresh, quality ingredients. This is a take on the British Virgin Islands’ drink of choice: the Painkiller. This cocktail, made famous by Pusser’s Rum, will transport you from cramped apartment kitchen to the breezy beaches.

¼ orange + peel
2 oz pineapple juice, no added sugar
2 oz rum (we used Sag Harbor Rum)
1 ounce coconut milk
½ teaspoon your favorite sweetener (optional)
crushed ice
whole nutmeg

Muddle ¼ orange.
Add pineapple juice, rum, coconut milk and sweetener (if using).
Pour over crushed ice.
Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
And also orange zest. Enjoy.
