#DrinkOfTheWeek: Pain Killer

Yaaas! It;s FINALLY in the 80’s! It’ just a beautiful day! I have already been roaming around 3 of our 5 boroughs, and tonight I’m attending my first game at Yankee Stadium. (I’m really a Red Sox fan, but I’ll go for good company and a footlong Hot Dog). And it is Saturday, that means my Drink of the Week is due. It’s another refreshing cocktail. Don’t ask me why it is called Painkiller, I didn’t come up with it!! It’s sweet and coconutty, you will definitely enjoy this concoction!



What you’ll need:2 oz dark rum

2 oz pineapple juice
2 oz orange juice
1 oz Coco Lopez

Shake all ingredients in a Martini shaker with ice, then pour over fresh ice and enjoy!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
