Painkiller Cocktail Recipe

Painkiller Recipe

Painkiller is a nice and fruity cocktail with a taste of pineapple and coconut. The recipe is based on the classic drink Piña Colada, but here a splash of orange juice is added and the Painkiller is usually made with dark rum instead of light rum. The drink was created in the 1970s at the Soggy Dollar Bar in the British Virgin Islands.
