Planters Punch

Planters Punch is a favorite at Mardi Gras and there are several recipes for this cool summer cocktail. Try these recipes and find your favorite mix.

This is my favorite version...top shelf liquor only!

3 oz Myers's Original Dark Rum
3 oz Captain Morgan Silver Spiced
1.5 oz Grand Marnier
6 oz Orange Juice
6 oz Pineapple Juice
1.5 oz Lime Juice
1.5 oz Simple Syrup
4 dashes Bitters
2 oz Grenadine Syrup
1 Orange slices

In a pitcher combine Myers's Original Dark Rum, Captain Morgan Silver Spiced Rum, Grand Marnier, orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, simple syrup, bitters and grenadine. Pour into shaker and add ice. Shake and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with orange slices.

This version is a bit lighter on the alcohol, but quite delicious.

1 oz Lime Juice
1 tsp Lemon Juice
2 oz Orange Juice
1 tsp Pineapple Juice
2 oz Light Rum (Bacardi Superior)
1 oz Jamaica Rum (Myer's dark)
2 dashes Triple Sec
1 dash Grenadine Syrup

Stir first 5 ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail glass. Add jamaican rum and stir. Add triple sec and grenadine. Garnish with slices of oragne, lemon, and pineapple, a maraschino cherry, and a sprig of mint dipped in sugar. Serve with a straw.

Another tasty version to try.

2 oz. Dark Rum
2 oz. Orange Juice
2 oz. Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
Dash Grenadine
Orange Slice & Cherry for garnish

Combine 3 juices and Rum in a shaker with ice. Shake well, and strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with grenadine. Garnish with an Orange slice and a Maraschino Cherry.

For a thirsty crowd, multiply the recipe by number of servings and serve in a pitcher with ice.
