Planter's Punch

Planter's Punch

A nice, easy-going tropical drink. As described in the new cocktail recipe book: "This was created by Fred L Myers in the late 19th century. For a modern fruity version, substitute pineapple juice for the water."

I did not have pineapple juice, but that substitution sounds great. Maybe cut back on the simple syrup in that situation, though. I also did not have extra limes to make a lime wheel for the garnish, so I used a lemon wheel instead.


  • 2oz Rum
  • 2oz Ice Water
  • 1oz Simple Syrup
  • 1/2oz Lime Juice
  • 3oz Angostura Bitters
  • Garnish: Lime Wheel
