The Painkiller recipe

The Painkiller is one of those recipes that have been trademarked — in this case by Pusser’s rum. No matter how you feel about that, though, it’s a great drink and one of the all time Caribbean tiki classics.

According to Jeff ‘Beachbum’ Berry, this drink was invented a decade before the recipe to Pusser’s rum was bought by Charles Tobias. The history that Pusser’s gives about the Painkiller is that Tobias perfected a recipe that the owner of the Soggy Dollar in 1981, Daphne Henderson, used to make. Whatever the history in the end, the drink is delicious. That’s what counts.
