Planter's Punch

Shake all of the ingredients with ice and pour (without straining) into a larger-sized lowball glass or double old fashioned glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

This version of the drink would have originally been blended, however I shake it instead.

This version of Planter’s Punch is by Donn Beach from 1937 and documented by Beachbum Berry. It is one of many Planter’s Punch variations, but it has a lot in common with Beach’s Zombie and helps demonstrate the connection between the two drinks by being more toned-down in alcohol as well as simpler and closer to an original Caribbean punch.
