So this is a fairly famous cocktail in the Caribbean, but I can’t use it’s more popular moniker (Painkiller) because it’s actually owned by a fairly powerful liquor company. So I’m naming this version after the island upon which I first enjoyed it, Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. I can attest to it’s anesthetic qualities because after four of them I fell off my stool onto my face and felt … absolutely nothing. But before I arrived at oblivion, I did notice that it tasted really good. So does this one. Just be sure to cut yourself off at three.
