Soggy Dollar's 43rd Anniversary Party Today

     The Soggy Dollar is celebrating it's 43rd Anniversary today with a big "Beach Bash" on White Bay in Jost Van Dyke.   The Soggy Dollar, home of the Painkiller Cocktail is pulling out all of the stops and turning up the fun for the occasion.   The entire staff has put together a great party for you to enjoy today.  If you happen to be in the area today you won't want to miss this one.   If not, mix up a Painkiller where ever you are and lift one to the Soggy Dollar Bar on its 43rd Anniversary.

Bartender Mic at the Soggy Dollar
      George Myrick, Originated and Perfected the Painkiller at Sandcastle's Soggy Dollar Bar in the 1970's, this smooth, full-flavored rum cocktail has become the essence of Caribbean imbibing"    Now in it's 43rd year and the sales of the Painkiller keep growing and growing.  You need to stop by and see Mic and have him make one for you today if you are in the area.

View from the Soggy Dollar Bar
   The scenery alone is all the reason you need to go to White Bay, but a easy swim into the beach and a visit to the "Worlds Best Beach Bar" makes the trip even more special.   I'll be there in December and can't wait to spend a day on Jost Van Dyke and toss back a few painkillers with my friends at the soggy Dollar and just relax for a while.

     The Painkiller
  • 1 1/2 oz. Crème of Coconut
  • 1 1/2 oz. Pusser's Rum
  • top up with Pineapple Juice
  • splash of Orange Juice
Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake until chilled and pour into a pint glass and top with fresh ground nutmeg and maybe a touch of cinnamon as well.  Garnish with an Orange wheel and a cherry.

     If you are not at the Soggy Dollar, and in Key West, stop by and have a "Painkiller" with me at the Rum Bar on Duval Street.   Join my friend Mike and lift a glass to honor the Soggy Dollar Bar on its 43rd Anniversary.   ;o)
