now that it's the next day, i'm wondering if the pina coloada would actually taste the same as the painkiller if you made the pina colada with Pusser's.

Maybe similar but not the same. A pina colada does not have orange juice or nutmeg and the ratios of everything else are quite different.

Be careful what you go around calling a Painkiller, you might get sued...

wait a second, Pusser's doesn't even specifically include its own rum as part of its trademarked definition of what comprises a Painkiller?!

from the USPTO:

"Alcoholic fruit drinks with fruit juices and cream of coconut and coconut juice. "

the Goombay Smash is another drink that can be thrown in with the Pain Killer and the Pina Colada in the coconut-pineapple drinks profile.

had no OJ, no pineapple juice, and no Coco Lopez.

so used Cruzan Coconut rum, and a blend of grapefruit and mango juices instead. used 1 oz Gosling's Black Seal, 2 oz Pusser's, topped with cinnamon and grated nutmeg.

sweet, tart, spicy, and a rum punch to the mouth. reminded of many a girlfriend from my youth. a tasty drink!

but is it a painkiller's cousin, or a planter's punch's nephew??
