A taste of summer

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Over on Blueprint’s blog, Sara Humphreys suggests a dark and stormy as an antidote to winter weather blues. (Clearly March has everyone thinking about warm weather cocktails.) For me, the summery rum drink of choice is a Painkiller. I was introduced to the Painkiller a few summers back and it’s been a favorite ever since (special thanks to the Matalene family for the introduction). Here’s a recipe from copycat.com. I recommend using Coco Lopez for the cream of coconut, Tropicana’s Orange Pineapple juice is already mixed for you, so if it’s available, use that, and if you’re feeling ambitious go for fresh grated nutmeg. And like Sara, I like mine strong, so go ahead an add an extra spash of rum, if you like.
