Planter's Punch (IBA) Description
Invented in the late 19th century by the founder of Myers's rum, Fred L. Myers. The recipe on the back of each bottle is known as the 'Old Plantation formula' and uses classic rum punch proportions of 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 of 1 sweet, 2 sour, 3 strong and 4 weak.
- Here is how you make it:
- Pour all ingredients except the bitters into shaker filled with ice then shake well. Pour into large glass filled with ice. Add Angostura bitters on top.
