Painkiller Cocktail Recipe
This Painkiller Cocktail Recipe is a popular tropical cocktail in the Caribbean, especially in the British Virgin Islands, where it was created.
It’s a fruity mix of pineapple, orange, coconut, and bold “navy style” rum. It is a perfect drink while relaxing on a beach somewhere or a lazy summer day relaxing in your own backyard.
