Pain Killer

Death and taxes. At least we can take the edge off the latter with this tropical concoction from the British Virgin Islands. Rum, which started in the Caribbean, forms the backbone and the usual suspects of the umbrella-drink crowd fill it out. The pineapple contributes sweetness to counter the orange’s tartness while the creamier coconut gives it body. The nutmeg is optional but adds a nice warm note as you sip. Beats an aspirin every time.

4oz Dark Rum
3oz Pineapple Juice
1oz Cream of Coconut
1oz Orange Juice

Add all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain over ice. Top with freshly grated nutmeg.
