Adult Fruit Drink

Adult Fruit Drink


Hubby is always saying he doesn’t get enough fruits or vegetables in his diet, so when he told me about a quick fruit-liquor his mother makes, I decided to give it a go.

Liquored Fruit

3 pints Fresh Berries (I used raspberries and blueberries)
1 cup White Rum
1 cup White Sugar

• Place fruit in bowl that has a cover
• Add sugar, mix
• Add rum, cover bowl
• Refrigerate covered overnight

Now in and of itself this is very good! But Hubby wasn’t eating the fruit mixture alone, so I decided to get out the old blender, give it a whirl and see if he would drink the fruit mix.

Success! This is a fruit drink with a kick. Sweet, not tart (you all know how I like sweet), and it goes down very smooth! Hubby admitted he liked his mom’s fruit mix blended, and drank several glasses over the course of a few days! That was the bonus… the alcohol allowed the fruit to keep for days without turning funky. I actually had the covered fruit in the fridge for several days and just decided to blender it in the hopes of someone actually consuming the fruit. And this idea succeeded admirably.

Have you ever made fruit with liquor? Ever given it a whirl through a blender? What did you use for fruit and liquor, and how did it taste?

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

Painkiller Alcoholic Beverage Recipe

Painkiller Cocktail Recipe. A delicious rum-based alcoholic beverage recipe, this copycat cocktail recipe is based on the infamous Cheddar restaurant beverage. This delicious Painkiller cocktail packs a wallop!


My good friend Tamona told me about this drink called a Painkiller that was very tasty, and used my favorite hard liquor: rum! It comes from Cheddars (which I had never heard of), and Tamona told me they have a strict limit of two per person.

Sounded right up my alley!

This is such a simple cocktail, yet it tastes so darned good! It will sneak up on you if you have more than a few as it just tastes so delightful.

I finally got to Cheddars about 10 years after Tamona gave me this recipe. While there, I simply had to order a Painkiller!! I was curious at how it differed, and if her copycat recipe was “correct”.

The main difference is the they rimmed with toasted coconut. Their garnish was a slice of pineapple, as well as the nutmeg.

Honestly? This recipe Tamona gave me – with the small noted tweak – is below. It is simply fabulous. The Cheddar’s painkiller went down very easily, but I didn’t care for the rimming. If you like toasted coconut, give it a go!

I changed the alcohol ingredient from dark rum to white rum and used this recipe:

• 1 oz Orange Juice
