|Sir Mix a Lot...well Lady Mix a Lot|
A quick lap around the narrow island lead us back to where everyone was congregating. The bar was overflowing with blenders, fruits, mixes, and the thing that stole most of our attention-the animal toppers. The flamingos, crocodiles, and penguins were the bees knees and a must-have souvenir. After the bartender brought us back to reality, we refocused our attention to the real reason we came to Painkiller. Looking at the interesting menu caused a minor headache so we let the bartender work her magic and come up with a concoction to ease our pain.
|Put Me Under Arrest|
Then the NYPD showed up. No, not the cops but Painkiller's take on a Miami Vice, a yellow and blue sweet drink topped with coconut shavings. The drink was as big as the entire force and the perfect drink to share with my partner in crime. Sweet yet strong the drink was one of the many culprits on their menu that might make you answer the original question with a 10.
