A Painkiller is a rum cocktail trademarked by Pusser's Rum, their signature drink. It is often associated with Tiki establishments. The Painkiller is a blend of Pusser's Rum with 4 parts pineapple juice, 1 part cream of coconut and 1 part orange juice, well shaken and served over the rocks with a generous amount of fresh nutmeg on top. It may be made with either two, three or four ounces of Pusser's dark rum.

Reputation has it [per Edward Hamilton's 1997 book The Complete Guide to Rum p. 47] that the original Painkiller was created in the 1970s at the Soggy Dollar Bar at White Bay on the island of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands.
