Summertime calls for all the fruity cocktails. The Caribbean painkiller combines coconut rum and vodka with orange, lime, and pineapple juices for the cocktail that will make you feel like you are sitting on the beach down in the islands. This rum and vodka cocktail can also be made by the pitcher.
Ingredients for a Painkiller Cocktail
To make this vodka + coconut rum Caribbean-inspired cocktail, you will need a combination of ingredients.
- Coconut Rum - Malibu works perfectly but any coconut rum will work.
- Vodka - Pick your go-to vodka for this. Not a flavored vodka, just a solid vodka.
- Orange Juice - Fresh squeezed. Or not. Just have some OJ.
- Lime Juice - Definitely fresh squeezed on this one.
- Pineapple Juice - This is why I always have the little mini cans of pineapple juice on hand.
- Maraschino Cherries - This is the ultimate garnish. Am I wrong?
- Lime slices - Garnish perfection
- Nutmeg - Just a dash can be an optional add-on to give even more dimension to the flavors.
How to Make a Caribbean Painkiller Cocktail
Grab your ingredients, cocktail shaker, and Tom Collins glass plus lots of ice, and get to making this rum drink. Begin by adding ice to the shaker. Then power the coconut rum and vodka over the ice. Squeeze the lime juice into the shaker and then add the pineapple juice and orange juice.
Give the cocktail shaker a big shake for 15-20 seconds. Then pour the cocktail into the Tom Collins glass filled with ice. Drop a few maraschino cherries over the cocktail and place a lime slice on the rim of the glass. Enhance the flavors with a dusting of nutmeg. This is completely optional.
