Planter’s Punch

Planter’s Punch can be traced back to a time when the West Indies were considered exotic, and recipes were written in verse. “Two of sour, one and a half of sweet, three of strong and four of weak,” directed one description from a 1908 article in the New York Times.

Ingredient ratios vary from account to account as does the drink’s name—it’s been known as Jamaican Rum Punch (Savoy Cocktail Book) and Creole Punch (British novelist Alec Waugh)—but it almost always contains rum, lime, sugar and water. More modern versions like the one from tiki stalwart Trader Vic might include grenadine or curaçao. Really, it’s up to the drinker when it comes to additions beyond the nursery rhyme specs, just as long as they’re added to base of good, dark Caribbean rum.

Jamaican Planters Punch Recipes

Did you know that the recipe for Planters Punch originated in Jamaica? Well, it did. The first known recipe was published in a British magazine in 1878. The typical Planter’s Punch recipe called for just rum, lime juice, sugar, and water, but sliced fruit like oranges and pineapples were often included either as garnish or in the drink itself. Soon those slices of fruit were replaced by various citrus juices, including pineapple, orange, and grapefruit.

Traditional Planters Punch Recipe
1 oz White Rum
1 oz Dark Rum
1 1/2 oz Orange Juice
1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Strawberry Flavoured Syrup
Blend and serve with ice.
Top off with a splash of dark rum

Today Planters Punch is usually any combination of fruit juices and rum. Recently, while we were at Jakes Hotel in Treasure Beach we had their delicious Planters Punch made with fresh fruit blended with rum. Using whole fruit instead of fruit juices makes the punch thick and creamy like a delicious smoothie with a kick! Calesia was kind enough to show us how to make their recipe, which is super easy, especially if you have a high-powered blender to turn the fruit, ice and rum into a gorgeous cocktail to savour.

Jake’s All-Fruit Planters Punch
Crushed Ice
Fresh fruit: watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, papaya, banana
Jamaican Rum

1. Blend 4 cups of ice and 4 cups of fruit in a blender until smooth. Note: Melons have a lot water which helps with the blending. If you are not using melon you may need to add a little fruit juice when blending the ingredients. Always include bananas because they add just the right amount of sweetness.
2. Pour 1 to 2 ounces of Jamaican rum into a tall glass and pour fruit mixture on top.
3. Add a slice or pineapple or watermelon to the edge of the glass as a garnish.

A tangy punch which harnesses the rich flavours of the rum.

Invented in the late 19th century by the founder of Myers's rum, Fred L. Myers. The recipe on the back of each bottle of his rum is known as the "Old Plantation formula" and uses the classic rum punch proportions: 1 sour (lime), 2 sweet (sugar), 3 strong (rum) and 4 weak (water). Rather than this, or the American formula: 1 sour, 2 sweet, 3 weak, and 4 strong, I've followed David A. Embury's recommendation (in The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks ) of 1 sweet, 2 sour, 3 strong and 4 weak.

The Planter’s Punch is our cocktail of the day on the 6 th of May when international no diet day is celebrated. On that day everyone deserves a cocktail like the Planter’s Punch.


The Planter´s Punch is an old rum drink and the origin is unknown to me. The most common recipe is 1/3 Rhum, 1/3 Orange Juice, 1/3 Pineapple Juice and a dash of Grenadine.

The only thing i know is that the recipe has been evolving through the decades and name changed from Jamaican Rum Punch (In Modern American Drinks (1895),) to the Planter`s Cocktail #2 (Savoy Cocktail Book 1930) and in Trader Vic`s Bartender’s Guide (1948) there are no less than four variations, switching the lemon to mostly lime, and three of the recipes calls for grenadine.

Here´s eight versions of a famous drink – the Planter`s Punch.

In Beachbum Berry`s Remixed i found a version of this drink by Stephen Remsberg and found it very interesting in its simplicity.

Its interesting proportions in his version – its not often you see 3 oz of Coruba in a drink and since its Coruba most likely i will really enjoy it!

It has no orange or pineapple juices or grenadine in it and its much like a daiquiri with dark rum and the addition of angostura bitters.

For those of you dear readers who doesn´t know, Stephen Remsberg owns the world`s largest rum collection. His home in New Orleans contains an impressive amount of rare rums from all over the planet – some all the way back to the 1800`s or even older what do i know? i just know i tasted some amazing rums there, even some pre – Castro Cubans and others from the 1800s.

Stephen have played with the Planter´s punch for 20 years until he found the one he was satisfied with and this is his version that i found in the Bum´s Remixed:


Juice of half a large lime about 3/4 oz
1 oz sugar syrup ( i used Petit Canne)
3 oz Coruba dark Jamaican rum
3 dashes Angostura bitters

Place all the ingredients in a large tall glass – if you have a 14 oz Zombie glass you`re set – fill with crushed ice and swizzle until frosty. Add more crushed ice to fill if needed. Garnish with a mint sprig.

“I am not offended by an orange slice and a cocktail cherry” adds Stephen – well Stephen, i have no orange slice or cherry but i have a colorful orchid and some fresh mint….i hope it`s ok:-)

So how does this Planter`s Punch taste?

As i did guess, its deliscious and well balanced. I must say i love the simplicity – it´s so simple and yet so wonderfully complete. The rum is the key – in this drink its Coruba that is used – one of my favorite rums to mix with.

The Planter`s Punch served in some bars contains too much mixers and too little rum! – this is more real to me, this is how a rum drink should taste – you should feel the rum in it and it should be well backed up but not overpowered by the mixers – in this case just fresh lime and sugarcane syrup plus the Angostura bitters.

I think this version is very tasty – and here´s a real rum drink to relax with! – and then i just can`t help wondering how this drink would be with 1 oz of the vintage Lemon Hart 151 in it…i`m a typically booze blogger..always ready for more reserach..

From Jeff Berry’s Grog Log there´s two Planter´s Punches – The Planter`s Punch and Don`s Own Planter`s:


1 1/4 oz orange juice
1 1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3 tsp grenadine (please..if you can use homemade..)
0.5 oz dark Jamaican Rum
1 1/4 oz Light Puerto Rican Rum

Shake everything except dark Jamaican rum – with a scoop of crushed ice and pour into tall glasses. Then float the dark Jamaican on top of drink. Garnish with orange slice and maraschino cherry speared to pineapple chunk.

The recipe comes from the polo Lounge of the Beverly Hills CA circa 1960s.


As the name implies – from Don the Beachcomber:

1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 oz Soda Water (Club Soda)
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
1 oz Honey Mix (1 part Honey and 1 part Water)
1 1/2 oz Dark Jamaican Rum
1 oz Light Puerto Rican Rum

Shake with ice cubes and pour everything into Pilsner glass. Garnish with mint, cherry, and pineapple finger. To make honey-mix simply heat 1/2 cup honey until liquid then add 1/1 cup water and mix it, it stays liquid so it can go in the fridge.

I like this one too and i like honey-mix..honey adds a third dimensional sweetness to a drink, like some very good dark sugars also can do but it also adds an extra smoothness the drink.


Here`s the version from the book “Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix`em by Stanley Clisby Arthur.

1 tblsp sugar (or simple syrup)
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 jigger rum (1.5 oz)
1/2 jigger (0.75 oz) Bourbon whiskey
1 jigger ( 1.5 oz) cognac brandy

Dissolve the sugar with a little water in a mixing glass. (or use simple syrup)

Add the lemon juice, bourbon and brandy. Fill with fine ice and shake thoroughly, strain into a tall glass. Garnish with fruit and serve with straw.

This one is very typically old style New Orleans cocktail. Boozy with bourbon, cognac and lemon among the ingredients. I find this one VERY tasty!


Here`s a version that has morphed into something totally different. Found in one of the many little flyers and booklets i got from New Orleans during Tales week. The recipe comes from Fant`s restaurant in Coral Springs, Florida. And now the pineapple juice is present. Here is a more juicy and fruity cocktail:

3 oz pineapple juice
2 oz orange juice
2 oz dark rum
1 oz light rum
1 dash grenadine
1 dash angostura bitters
Pineapple slices and cherries for garnish

Shake together and pour over ice in a tall glass

From the same book comes two other versions, first this one:

PLANTER`S PUNCH from “Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix`em”

2 lumps of sugar
Juice of 1 lime
1 dash Peychauds bitters
1 jigger water (1.5 oz)
2 jigger rum

In a tall glass – squeeze the lime over the sugar and add bitters, water and 2 jiggers of rums and fill up with shaved or crushed ice. Swizzle well with a barspoon (or swizzle stick) Sift a little nutmeg on top or a dash of red pepper.

Now while i was at it with all this reserach i decided to make my own Planter`s – i mean its in order right? so instead of Peychauds i used the Creole Bitters and used Petit Canne sugarcane syryp. For rums i used all dark rums.


0.5 oz fresh lime juice
0.5 oz sugarcane syrup
2 dashes Bitter Truth Creole bitters bitters or Peychaud`s.
1 oz dark Jamaican rum (Coruba)
1 oz strong dark Jamaican rum (Smith & Cross)

Swizzle together in tall glass with ice, add a few extra dashes Creole bitters on top and garnish with fresh mint and lime.


“one of sour, two of sweet, three of strong and four of weak”

1 part lime juice
2 parts sugar
3 parts Jamaican rum
4 parts water and ice

So there are many versions of this drink..and in this post eight of them – one very simple and rummy, one with honey-mix and soda water, one more “classic caribbean style” and then two totally different Mississippi Planter`s Punches.

And then we got two other versions from the book “Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix`em” – one just called Planter´s Punch with Peychauds bitters, nutmeg or red pepper and then the my own the Creole version and finally the Jamaican version of the Planter´s which is the closest to Remsberg`s version.

Lagniappe (extra) :


1/3 pineapple juice
1/3 orange juice
1/3 lime o lemon juice
1 tsp grenadine
2 jiggers rum (3 oz)

Swizzle together everything with crushed ice, adding juices and rum last.

From “Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix`em”

Another one – From the book – Two Hundred Selected Drinks, Knut W Sundin, 1934


This drink is very popular on the Island of Jamaica and principally in Kingston.

The juice of a fresh lime
A tablespoonful of sugar syrup
1 dash of Angostura bitters

Good Jamaica rum, wine glass or 2 ponies, to taste
Cognac brandy, 2 jiggers
Lime, juice, 1 or juice 1/2 lemon
Fresh pineapple juice, 1/2 jigger

First chill the glass – whether silver or crystal. Pack the glass tightly with finely shaved ice, pour in the liquids previously mixed, stir briskly for a moment with long spoon or swizzle stick. Garnish with a finger of ripe pineapple, a cherry, or a bit of orange. Serve when glass frosts.

And here`s proof i don`t always do my research good enough, i found on Trader Tiki`s site my own entry to the 2010 Tales of the Cocktail Tiki Punch Up contest, which is a Tiki variation on the Planter´s Punch. I had totally forgotten that drink existed-) well here it is – click to get the recipe for the Planteur de Lis!

Then i found from Trader Tiki`s site again of course – one that made it to the finalists of said competition, the Punch Louisiana. I have to add it too since the recipe looks so yummy!

These two last cocktails has three things in common – they are both Tiki versions of the Planter`s Punch, they were both in the Punch Up and they are both using Trader Tiki`s Don`s Mix! which is one of all his yummy syrups i can recommend, heck i even use it to sweeten my breakfast porridge!

Planters punch recipe non alcoholic

While Thanksgiving is an excellent season for excellent food, it’s additionally a perfect season for any killer cocktail. This really is my third year consecutively developing a cocktail for Thanksgiving, and I love to think they simply keep improving. This season I've for you personally a Planter’s Punch cocktail recipe. It’s an excellent daytime drink with fruit drinks along with a little dark rum. Ideal for that pre-poultry time!

Have no fear, when developing cocktail recipes, I’ve been leaning toward getting an easy hands using the alcohol. My cocktails aren't meant to &"enable you to get drunk&" but instead usually are meant to be sipped and enjoyed. However, if you need a more powerful cocktail, be my guest while increasing the alcohol. Be sure that you drink responsibly and try to make use of a designated driver! Safety factors are #1, regardless of what.

Planter’s Punch is an extremely old cocktail beginning in Jamaica and dating back the late 1800’s. There’s really a rhyme for that original recipe:

A wine-glass with fresh lemon juice fill, of sugar exactly the same glass fill two times
Then rub them together until
The mix looks smooth, soft, and nice.
Of rum then three wine glasses add,
And 4 of cold water please take.
A Glass Or Two then you definitely’ll obtain that’s pretty good —
A minimum of, so that they say in Jamaica.

Today Planter’s Punch is identified by the IBA (Worldwide Bartenders’s Association) being an official cocktail meaning it will come with an &"official&" recipe. However, everybody as well as their granny has their very own form of Planter’s Punch which means this my chance to talk about mine. I stay not far from the spirit from the official recipe but do substitute some ingredients. The state form of Planter’s Punch is most likely sweeter than mine although my recipe, because you will taste, is nice yet balanced, overall.

Among the hallmarks of the Planter’s Punch is applying a dark rum like Myers’s rum. Dark rums are aged for extended amounts of time than obvious or gold rums. They're also aged in highly charred barrels, which will help to provide them their signature color and flavor profile. Most dark rums result from someplace sunny and warm. Myers’s is really created in Kingston, Jamaica. It’s my personal favorite make of dark rum, although here in america we could also easily get Bacardi 8 year, Pusser’s British Navy Dark, and Gosling’s Black Seal (to mention a couple of). Utilizing a dark rum can give the preferred flavor profile within this drink. Don’t substitute lighter rums within this recipe.

The mixers with this cocktail can be really familiar for you all: club soda, grenadine, lime juice, simple syrup and satsuma juice (or orange juice). Okay, well maybe aside from the satsuma, that is a fantastic little lemon or lime we've within South Louisiana. It’s much like a Clementine, although typically larger than a Clementine. They're super easy to peel and juice. If you're able to get hold of satsumas or Clementines, use individuals. Otherwise, fresh-squeezed orange juice could work all right. (BTW, the satsuma isn't pictured above, it had been a final minute add-in).

Should you’re searching for grenadine within the supermarket, it’s alongside the many other cocktail mixers. It’s a vibrant red colorization, non-alcoholic, and adds a pleasant flavor to beverages. It had been initially created using pomegranate juice, but brands like Rose’s are essentially just HFCS nowadays. Try to obtain a better brand if you're able to, but you might have trouble finding this type of factor in a standard supermarket. Allow Dr. Pepper/Snapple (Rose’s parent company) to make use of this kind of awful component. (I’m Not really a fans of HFCS, as you have seen). Anyway, onto better things.

Simple syrup, for individuals individuals who don’t know, is only a combination of equal areas of sugar and water introduced to some boil and simmered before the sugar dissolves. It’s referred to as &"simple&" due to its 1:1 ratio of sugar and water. I’ve seen recipes for other proportions who call themselves &"simple,&" however that’s not correct. Using the 1:1 ratio, you’ll finish track of the right quantity of sweetness. One half ounce, that is what this recipe requires, is an extremely little bit of simple syrup. Have no fear if one makes greater than you’ll need. You should use simple syrup to sweeten all kinds of such things as teas, coffee or any other cocktails. You may also utilize it along with lime or lemon juice to create refreshing beverages.

Now onto our garnish. I favor to utilize a lime wheel as my garnish with this drink. They're quite simple to produce and provide the cocktail a stylish look. Simply thinly slice a lime making a really small reduce the wedge about midway in. This will help you to squeeze wedge around the rim from the highball glass.

Talking about highball glass, every official cocktail also offers a chosen kind of drinkware. A highball glass is really a tall glass tumbler that may hold between 8 and 12 fluid ounces. I don’t think I made use of an &"official&" highball glass within my photographs, not to mention, you don’t need to either. Only use a glass that’s got the capability of the highball, and also you’ll be golden.

Significantly improved your whistle is able to be wet, to the recipe!

Planter's Punch Recipe

It's good to have a few basic drink recipes banked away for those times when you want something cold and refreshing. And when it comes to basic, cold and delightful, few drinks can beat a Planter's Punch.

The Planter's Punch flowed out of the rum-rich Caribbean well over a century ago, and its origins date back centuries. Originally a simple combination of a full-flavored rum with lime juice, sugar, some form of spice and plenty of ice, the Planter's Punch morphed over the decades into elaborate concoctions containing pineapple juice, grenadine, several types of rum, and so on. The drink is the common ancestor of all those tiki drinks and punches that are once again in vogue.

While messing with original recipes is often disdained in the cocktail world, the Planter's Punch is the kind of laid-back drink that it's best not to get too worked up about.

Feel free to experiment with the basic recipe (this one is from Beachbum Berry Remixed, by Jeff Berry, and was contributed by New Orleans-based rum collector Stephen Remsberg, who has experimented with Planter's Punch recipes for more than 20 years and settled on this version as his favorite), substituting grenadine for some of the sugar, for example, or trying a mixture of different styles of rum.

As long as the drink remains icy and refreshing, virtually any edits you make are bound to work out.

Steps to Make

  1. Gather all the ingredients and put them into a shaker with ice.
  2. Now shake the shaker until the ice gets crushed and all the ingredients get chilled.
  3. Now add a splash of soda water in a glass and then add all the chilled ingredients from the shaker into the glass.
  4. Now garnish the drink with Mint Sprig and serve.

So now you’ve had your Planter’s Punch ready that you can have with your favorite food. Since it originated in the Caribbean, people usually enjoy this drink with their favorite seafood like Shrimp Scampi , Salmon and many more.

Rum, don’t walk, for a classic island libation: punch

Lucky for us Hannah, who brings his mixology skills to bars at both Walt Disney World and the Wellborn, has his own slightly elevated recipe for today’s fun foray into Planter’s Punch, a refreshing libation we’re celebrating for National Rum Punch Day (Sept. 20).

Rum punch brings with it happy, fruity feels and a load of nostalgia. Child of the ’70s that I am, I mostly see “The Love Boat’s” Isaac the bartender giving me the finger guns, punch-filled blender at the ready — but its lineage predates the Pacific Princess, Morgan Fairchild and Charo by centuries, going at least as far back as Barbados, 1694.

“It spread quickly through the islands and soon there were as many variants and recipes as there were styles of rum,” he notes. “In the 1920s, the Planter’s Punch was a favorite at the Myrtle Bank and Titchfield hotels in Kingston, Jamaica, where Donn the Beachcomber likely first sampled it.”
