“El Dorado' was a legendary King from Guyana who was fabled to have his body dusted in Gold who also lived in a city made of it too. Whilst it may not be the 1st place that springs to mind when you think of Rum, it has been produced there since the mid 17th Century. Whilst Sugar Cane had been planted in Guyana for a number of years, the distillation process was not known in the country until around 1650. Perhaps unsurprisingly once the process was fully understood this new alcoholic drink was so well received that by 1670 it is said that every single sugar estate on the island had started to distil.
Aromas of caramel, butterscotch and molasses
Painkiller Cocktail Recipe
So the legend goes, the Painkiller cocktail was invented in the 1970’s in the British Virgin Islands at a bar called Soggy Dollar Bar. It was originally made with Pusser’s Rum, a type of rum made using the British Royal Navy recipe. The drink was trademarked in the 1980’s so that if it’s included on a menu, it should include the traditional Pusser’s Rum. Of course if you’re making it at home, you can use any type of aged or dark rum - we won't tell anyone! Many rum cocktails use white rum or dark rum. But the Painkiller cocktail uses a whole other category of this liquor: aged rum or golden rum! Aging rum for a few years gives it a complex flavor. Golden rum can have notes of vanilla, coconut, almond, citrus, or caramel. The aged rum that we used here was Brugal Añejo Rum. Can’t find golden or aged rum or don’t have it on hand? You can substitute dark rum and the drink will work. You can also use white rum, but it’s not quite the same for this classic drink.
