Planter’s Punch

Planter’s Punch

This cocktail has been on most cocktail menus for the better part of a century, if not more.  It is also the most used and abused interpretation, probably even more than the Mai Tai.  While there are literally a dozen versions which are historically documented, this is the version I used and I like a lot. This is a highly intoxicating drink with a full 3 ounces of rum.


  • 2 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce grapefruit juice
  • 1 ounce honey mix
  • 1/4 ounce Grenadine
  • 1 ounce Corub Dark Jamaican rum
  • 1 ounce Puerto Rican Gold rum
  • 1 ounce Cockspur Barbados rum
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters

Shake well and pour unstrained into a tall glass. Garnish with speared cherry.
