This PAINKILLER RECIPE is the original from the British Virgin Islands. I had this rum cocktail on a trip to Catalina off the coast of California with my family and I was in love!
I’ve told you all about all the crazy traveling we did this summer. On our trip out to California to spend time with family we went sailing with my parents over to Catalina. We stayed for the weekend and had a blast!!! Let me say though, we all had a touch of seasickness heading over except my oldest monkey. My littlest guy was the worst. We took medicine and tried to keep some bread in his little tummy but we couldn’t handle it. While we were there we were moored off the coast so we still felt all the sway of the sea but we weren’t bothered by it. It actually ended up being a good thing because we all got used to it and no one had any issues on the sail back after the weekend. While we were there we went ashore for lunch. I ordered a drink that was knew to me but had a fun name, Painkiller!
After my first sip I knew that I needed to find the recipe and recreate this cocktail. It tastes like a pina colada but it’s not frozen and to me a bit less sweet. I love pina coladas but I can’t usually finish a whole one because of the sweetness. I thought it was strange at first that it was topped with a dash of nutmeg but after I tried it I knew it was a good call. The spice of the nutmeg almost cuts the sweetness that you get from the drink. It was so good we’ve been sipping them at home now and we love our summer cocktail.
