Pusser’s Rum to taste (2, 3, or 4 oz.)
4 oz. Pineapple Juice

Drunk Dish’s Frozen Pusser’s Painkiller

3 or 4 oz. Pusser’s Rum
5 oz. Pineapple Orange Juice
1 oz. Cream of Coconut (Ice dilutes this a bit, so if you want it sweeter, add 2 oz. of Cream of Coconut, but be careful, that stuff is sweet!)
A couple tiny drops of Almond Extract
1 c. Ice
Grated Nutmeg

Combine all ingredients (except the nutmeg) in a high powered blender. Blend to desired consistency. Pour into a glass of your choice and top with grated nutmeg.
