In Punches, Recipes

In the Caribbean, Planter’s Punch is a generic name for just about any rum punch. There are as many variations on this party punch as there are islands. My favourite combination of ingredients calls for white and dark rum, triple sec, lemon and lime juice, simple syrup and a dash of grenadine syrup.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • cracked ice cubes
  • dash of grenadine

  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 1 part lime juice

  • Place 5 ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Put all ingredients, except the mineral water, into the cocktail shaker. Briskly shake until a frost forms.
