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.
Painkiller Cocktail Recipe
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”.
There it is right in the menu – limit of TWO!
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:
