Painkillers - 2 oz rum, 4 oz pineapple juice, 1 oz orange juice, 1 oz cream of coconut. Boat drink, similar to Pina colada. I would probably add a bit more rum to it, maybe a spice rum for more complexity.
The original recipe has a bit more rum. Also important to use Pusser's, it's dark and has a unique flavour:
3 oz Pusser's rum
1 oz coconut cream (separated from coconut milk)
4 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
Shake and top with a little fresh grated nutmeg.
Dangerous but amazing!
Great drink. Agreed...you must use Pusser's. Otherwise it's a different flavor profile. It's kinda like making a Dark n Stormy w/o Goslings Black Seal. But you probably can substitute another good naval strength rum (ie Smith & Cross).
The drink is a standard proportion, except you simply up "the pain" (2, 3, or 4 parts Pusser's). I personally prefer the #4, IMHO it balances out the sweetness.
