Just Add A Palm Tree – The Painkiller Cocktail

Painkiller, vacation in a glass, small barrel rum, white rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, nutmeg, ice, limeRight now it is snowing in southern Maine. We are expected to get about 5 inches of snow and all we can think about at the distillery is wishing we were someplace warm, preferably with palm trees.

Thankfully here at Wiggly Bridge Distillery we are able to get pretty darn close to feeling like we are someplace warm by whipping up a distillery favorite – The Painkiller.

Whether you are looking to dull the pain from all that shoveling or just looking for a dreamland escape, this “vacation in a glass” cocktail is sure to please your tastebuds.

It is one of the first cocktails we had on our menu at our original distillery location. This is a cocktail that originated in the British Virgin Islands at the legendary Soggy Dollar Bar.

It is a Wiggly fan favorite so sit back, relax, pretend you’re amongst palm trees and warmth. Check out the recipe below. Cheers.

*3/4 oz Wiggly Bridge Small Barrel Rum
