The Pusser's Rum PAINKILLER COCKTAIL Recipe

Painkiller Cocktail Recipe

September is National Pain Awareness Month and, being a cocktail lover, my mind went right to the Painkiller Cocktail. Created in the 1970s at the Soggy Dollar Bar in the British Virgin Islands, the Painkiller is basically an orange Piña Colada.

Technically, if you make this with anything other than Pusser's Rum, you can't call it a Painkiller because Pusser's trademarked the drink in 1989 with their rum in the recipe. Pusser's, by the way, was named after the purser (or pusser) who gave out the Royal Navy's daily daily tot (aka rum ration)

PINK CADILLAC MARGARITA Cocktail Recipe

PINK CADILLAC MARGARITA COCKTAIL RECIPE

The Pink Cadillac Margarita is a riff on a Cadillac Margarita. Why is it called a Cadillac Margarita? Because it's made with "top shelf" ingredients like Grand Marnier instead of Triple Sec and employs a pricier tequila. In fact, a few folks claim Patron invented the Cadillac version to promote their newly launched "premium" tequila.

As for the beginnings of the Pink Cadillac, who knows?? Maybe it was even inspired by Elvis' famous 1955 Pink Cadillac. I'm going with that because it's cool and makes me happy. But it would also be cool if it was named after the 1989 Clint Eastwood movie, Pink Cadillac where he drove around bounty-hunting Bernadette Peters in his vintage pink Cadillac. Seriously, you can't get much cooler than Elvis and Clint Eastwood.

PINK CADILLAC MARGARITA RECIPE WITH INGREDIENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS

The
PINK CADILLAC
MARGARITA

INGREDIENTS
2 Oz. Tequila Reposado
1 Oz. Grand Marnier
1 Oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 Oz. Agave Nectar
2 Oz. Fresh Cranberry Juice
2 Drops Angostura Orange Bitters

Garnish
Pink Himalayan Salt Mix Rim & a Sugar Dipped Lime Slice

DIRECTIONS
Rim a cocktail glass with lime then dip in the Himalayan salt.
Shake the ingredients with ice to chill then pour into an ice filled lowball glass.
Garnish and serve.

VOICEOVER VIDEO WITH INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS:

There are versions of this recipe that use Chambord in place of the cranberry juice but those recipes are all over the board and most sound way too sweet. The tartness of fresh cranberry juice seems a better balance with the Grand Marnier.

Pink Cadillac Day is celebrated every September 1st.

The Classic MONTE CARLO Cocktail Recipe

Monte Carlo Whiskey Cocktail Recipe

The Monte Carlo is basically a Manhattan that replaces the Manhattan's sweet vermouth with Bénédictine. Bénédictine* is a spiced herbal liqueur with additional flavor notes of honey and licorice. It's the big daddy to the more familiar B&B, a drier version mixed with brandy.

I usually make this with Rittenhouse 100. The nice thing about these classic whiskey cocktails is they can be easily tailored to personal tastes without sacrificing balanced flavor. I happen to enjoy a little spice in my cocktails and the spice notes of the Rittenhouse emphasize the spices of the Bénédictine.
