Disclaimer: I was provided Chila ‘Orchata rum to create this recipe, but all opinions are my own. This recipe is for people 21+. Please drink responsibly…aka, this drink is STRONG.
Make any day a vacay with this new twist on a Jamaican Painkiller. It’s a perfect sunny day drink–but watch out! They’re tasty…and strong.
Yay! It’s Friday! Anyone else having a WEEK? I am so ready to relax and enjoy one or two of these Painkillers. If only I could be on a tropical vacation right now! Four years ago, Ricky and I had our honeymoon in Mexico. Our anniversary wasn’t quite as exciting yesterday, but the weather is beautiful at least! The forecast for this weekend looks fab and I plan on making up a batch of these FOR SURE.
I first discovered this drink at a (now closed) Jamaican bar in Madison: Jolly Bob’s. Since I’m obsessed with pineapple and fun drinks, I had to try this. It’s super tasty and perfect for a warm, summery day. Be warned: these are STRONG. It lives up to it’s name: drink one or two of these and you’ll feel NO pain.
This new twist on the original uses Chila ‘Orchata, a cinnamon rum. While you normally think of coffee drinks (or shots) when you think of cinnamon rum, it’s also great for fruity! The original Painkiller uses nutmeg to spice up the creamy drink, so I knew the cinnamon would be a great alternative!
Note: When you mix cream liquor with any juice, some separation may occur, but trust me–it’s still super tasty! No need to worry!
- 4 shots-Dark Rum (Such as Myers's)
- 4 shots-Chila 'Orchata
- 6 oz -Pineapple Juice
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/4 cup Coco Lopez (piña colada mix)

- Optional garnish: maraschino cherries and pineapple leaves
In a blender, add: rum, pineapple juice, pineapple, ice and Coco Lopez.

Top with a shake of nutmeg.
Optional: garnish with cherries and 2 pineapple leaves. Serve in a tall hurricane glass or a stemless wine glass.
When mixing a cream liquor (like the Chila 'Orchata) with juice, some separation occurs. This is perfectly fine and still tasty!
If you don’t have tall hurricane glasses like this, you can enjoy in a stemless wine glass. Check your local Goodwill, they always seem to have extras!
How was your week? Do you need a Painkiller or two also?
