These Painkiller Cocktails live up to their name. They definitely take away your pain- although I’m not sure if that’s due to the alcohol literally numbing your pain, or the fact that they are so good that you can’t possibly remain sad or mad while you’re drinking them.
This cocktail is definitely one of my favorite warm weather drinks! It’s simple to make and is an easier, lower maintenance version of the Pina Colada- but no blender required! A classic combination of coconut, rum, orange and pineapple juice is usually used, but in this case I used a ready-made Pineapple Orange juice blend.
