Thirsty Thursday: The Painkiller Cocktail

By: Roberto Ferdman
The Painkiller Cocktail

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Creamy and refreshing, alcoholic and juice-filled, The Painkiller Cocktail packs a multifaceted punch. Each sip carries notes of nutmeg, along with an onslaught of sweet orange and pineapple juice, creamy coconut milk and aromatic dark rum. If you're looking to take a load off, look no further.

Bottoms up, folks.
