The Painkiller - Cocktail of the Week

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

The Pusser's Painkiller Cocktail

Happy Territory Day British Virgin Islands!*  

*As taken from the “Another 1001 Tenuous Excuses to Drink a Cocktail Ever” (Volume 2, Page 386, Paragraph 5)

Morning, Noon and Night…  

That’s just how often those lucky people in Martinique enjoy a Ti’Punch. Not forgetting all those occasions in between that generally feel better with a decent measure of rum, lime and sugar inside you! It's also the basis for a fab bartender competition that offers the winner an amazing trip to Martinique!
