This One is Crazy! (in a good way)

The Amazing DJ Takai is playing tonight at 10PM! Cocktails are 2-4-1 today and tonight. No cover. Always fun. So many reasons to come to Bacchus!

Are you a sucker for cocktails that come with warnings?

Warning: THIS ONE IS CRAZY (in a good way). But– Beware. It’s a drink that goes down a little tooooooo smoothly. It’s sweet, tropical and refreshing, but all of a sudden, it sneaks up on you! You go through a spate of emotions.....

You might know The Painkiller cocktail as a gigantic shared drink from the tiki bar that was lit on fire…surrounded by 4 straws…

Remember that night? The painkiller was just a drop in the bucket. That night ended in Taco Bell…7 layer burritos and nachos bell grande.

At Bacchus, we'll tame it (a little). We offer it up as a single-serve refreshing concoction. We promise you won't fall flat on the floor when you taste this delicious drink. But you might just run home and crash and wake up naked like this guy did....

But since it's 2-4-1 Wooden Nickel Wednesday, we advise you to stop at two.

If you want to make it at home, here's the single serving recipe:

The Painkiller

  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 4 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. sweetened coconut cream (or if you're thinking healthy? use coconut water)
  • 5 ice cubes
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • slice of lime, for garnish

In a cocktail shaker, combine rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, coconut cream and 3 ice cubes. Shake for about 10 seconds and pour in a tall glass. Add additional ice cubes to the glass and top with freshly grated nutmeg. Garnish with slice of lime.


Stop in to Bacchus today for a cocktail (or two) since it's 2-4-1 Wooden Nickel Wednesday. Whether you order The Painkiller or some other cocktail, we know you'll have a great time. DJ Takai spins at 10PM.
