VIDEO: The Soggy Dollar Bar’s Painkiller

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 23, 2015

It’s one of those legendary Caribbean cocktails: the Painkiller.

What makes it different is that, unlike some of the region’s other cocktail exports, to experience the Painkiller you really have to go to the source: the British Virgin Islands.

And while the beautiful archipelago is full of iterations of the cocktail, the most legendary is at the Soggy Dollar Bar, the world-famous beach bar on the tiny island of Jost Van Dyke. (The Soggy Dollar was named the No. 1 bar on Caribbean Journal’s recent list of the Caribbean’s 50 Best Beach Bars.

In the latest Caribbean Journal video, we talk to Soggy Dollar owner Jerry O’Connell and bartender Mic about the origins of the drink.
