Planter’s Punch is a classic rum drink that first appeared in print in a 1908 edition of The New York Times. Like other drinks, this has a disputed origin: one claim refers to the Planter’s Hotel in St. Louis, and another tells of a Jamaican planter’s wife who concocted it to cool down the workers.

This recipe is just one version – others include combinations of curacao, bitters or other juices such as pineapple and orange. At some bars a bar punch mix is used to fill. Also, you can easily increase the recipe’s volume and serve it as a party punch!
