The Soggy Dollar Painkiller

The  original recipe invented on White Bay, JVD 41 years ago.

I traveled to Jost van Dyke in the BVI to drink the original Painkiller at the Soggy Dollar Bar. Mick, perhaps one of the most famous bartenders in all the Virgin Islands, shows us how to make one of their signature drinks. Invented right at the bar 41 years ago.

The recipe:

  • 3 oz. rum
  • 4 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Orange Juice
  • 1 oz. Cream of Coconut

This recipe is not exact, as The Soggy Dollar doesn’t share the exact proportions.  I drank Painkillers all over the Virgin Islands and most are too sweet or have too much cream of coconut. Mick tells me the other mistake is people use too much orange juice.  Experiment and enjoy!
