Have found very few bartenders that no how to make them and if they do, they are sickeningly sweet. Any ideas?
Ah, the painkiller! When they are done right they aren't really too overly sweet. That's why I far prefer it to any pina colada. The ratios I use are:
4 parts pineapple juice
2 parts orange juice
1 part cream of coconut
1-2 parts rum (depending on how strong you like it...)
Grate some whole nutmeg over the top
Usually I make up a batch of the mix and then add rum on a drink-to-drink basis. Dark rum is key. At one of the wholesalers in Tortola I could get handles of Cruzan "aged rum" for about 8-10 bucks, so I've kinda gotten into the habit of using that...
