Serving Size: 1-2

TGIF, Weekend Cocktail Recipe – The Painkiller!


  • 2-4 oz. of Pusser's Rum ( I did 2 oz )
  • 4 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. cream of coconut
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • Grated fresh nutmeg ( Lots of nutmeg is key, maybe a good size pinch )


  1. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice add first four ingredients and stir. Pour into cocktail glasses and top with grated nutmeg


I like adding the nutmeg to the shaker so the nutmeg gets mixed with the other ingredients. Then top off with a little more nutmeg.

    We threw ours in the blender and that really made it lovely. Where did you get the coconut cream? We used a very thick organic coconut milk.

    You can usually find it at the grocery store. This is what we used.

    BTW, the blender is a great idea! Would save a ton of time, especially if you want to make a lot of it.

    Thanks for the coco cream info, so you don’t find it w/ the specialty foods which is where I was looking. So is it w/ pops etc where you can daquri mixes etc?

    Ya, usually where the cocktail section is in the grocery store. Sometimes you find it in a can but i prefer the squeeze bottle. I know i’ve seen in in Vancouver but its also everywhere in the states as well if you can’t find it here.
