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. Sounds pretty good.. but 1. What is Cream of Coconut? Is it a liquor or is it coconut milk cream?
    I’ll have to try it.. 🙂 MY usual painkiller is Rum & Dr Pepper. 🙂

    • I found it in the aisle with all the liquor additives, Kim. You know like sweet and sour mix, appletini mix, etc. It is not liquor.

    • Sandra Bishop says

      it is not a liquor and cream of Coconut is different than coconut milk, try the booze isle’s for cream of coconut which is a thick creamy cocoction.

    • Ms Kim you can find it in your local grocery store, usually in the international food section or in the mixed drink aisle. It comes both in a can and a plastic bottle like maybe squeezable mayo or mustard would come in. I like the bottle because you do not have to use it all.

  2. Sandra L Garth says

    All of a sudden I feel a headache coming on.

  3. Rick Tucker says

    Only has 1 alcoholic ingredient..how is that a painkiller? You want painkiller? Drink you some Everclear instead of Rum

  4. genevieve smith says

    Cheddar’s pain killer is a really good drink
