If you need to numb the pain, the Pain Killer is just what the doctor ordered.

It was originally concocted at the legendary Soggy Dollar Bar in the Sandcastle Hotel, on Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands. Technically, you can’t make one unless you’re using Pusser’s Navy-style rum. Pusser’s is a delightful rum based on the rum used by the British Navy until July 31, 1970.


  • 4 oz rum (preferably Pusser’s)
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz coconut cream
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 8 oz crushed ice

Add all the ingredients into a blender, and blend for approximately 3 seconds.

Pour into a Tiki mug or double rocks glass.

Dust with grated nutmeg, grated cinnamon or both.
