Don’s Own Planter’s

Don's Own Planter's cocktail, with dark rum, light rum, lemon juice, honey syrup, Angostura bitters, and sparkling water

The Planter’s Punch is a classic tiki cocktail, and it’s been around so long that there’s as many variations on it as there are mixologists, it seems. Our favorite is Gaz Regan’s citrus-heavy recipe, but this stripped-down interpretation from Don the Beachcomber comes in a close second.

The original recipe, as printed in Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log calls for a dark Jamaican rum and a light Puerto Rican rum. The rums you choose are a matter of personal taste; Don’s Own Planter’s is such a well-crafted recipe that it’ll bring out the best in any rum you already enjoy.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
