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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
