Drink of the month - September

These past 6+ months of Corona Virus have been downright tortuous.  We think we need to numb the pain with some PAINKILLERS 

 

History of the Painkiller It is said that the Painkiller was first created back in the 1970s by Daphne Henderson at the Soggy Dollar Bar on the British Virgin Islands. There is no dock on the beach so guests are forced to disembark directly into the water leaving them with wet dollar bills.  (You see where this is going, right?)

It is further said that Pusser's rum founder, Charles Tobias, was friends with Daphne. He continued to try and extract her recipe from her but she held it as a close trade secret. He eventually took one of her concoctions and recreated a similar version in his kitchen. From there he trademarked both the name and recipe and claimed it as his own.
