Don’s Own Planter’s
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.
- 1½ parts Dark rum
- 1 part Light rum or Aged rum
- 1 part Lemon juice
- 1 part Honey syrup
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters or Creole bitters or Tiki bitters
- 1 part Sparkling water
Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice, and strain into a tall ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling water and garnish with mint, pineapple, and cherry.
