Thirsty Thursday: Pusser’s Rum Painkillers

Back in a previous life, Sharon and I both found ourselves on the British Virgin Island of Tortola -- she on her honeymoon in 1991, and me with my hubby and friends during a cruise in 1996. There's not a lot to do on this island, other than go to Pusser's Bar and enjoy their (in)famous Painkiller cocktail. I don't remember much about that day after a few of these tropically tasty beverages, other than the fact that we DID make it back to the ship on time.

Flash forward to last weekend, we went to Beckett's Table, an excellent restaurant here in Phoenix, and lo and behold, they offered up a Painkiller on their cocktail menu. Hubby ordered one immediately. One sip took us back to our Caribbean adventures. They were so good he had a second.
So, there's a holiday weekend coming up next week that marks the "end" of summer. Go get yourself some Pusser's Rum (here's a link that will help you locate it in your town) and whip yourself up a Painkiller (or two or three -- the website has a recipe on how to make them in batches) and lounge by your pool, lake or sprinkler. Cheers!
The Painkiller® is a blend of Pusser's Rum with 4 parts pineapple juice, 1 part cream of coconut and 1 part orange juice served over the rocks with a generous amount of fresh nutmeg on top. You have a choice of numbers 2, 3 or 4, which designate the amount of Pusser's Rum! Cheers!
