The Mothership’s Spirit-Free Painkiller

For this spirit-free Painkiller recipe, Mothership owner Ricky Ramirez introduces tonic water to the mix. “It adds a bittering effect where you’d never know it’s nonalcoholic,” he says.


  • 2 oz. fresh pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. Coco Lopez
  • Chilled tonic water
  • Tools:shaker, grater
  • Glass:double Old Fashioned
  • Garnish:nutmeg and pineapple fronds


Add all of the ingredients except the tonic water to a shaker with crushed ice. Briefly shake, then pour everything into a double Old Fashioned glass. Add more crushed ice, then top with chilled tonic water. Garnish.
