Planter's Cocktail

Eventually punches became less fashionable. People didn't have time to sit around a punch bowl and ladle out cups to drink from. Single serving punches became common with all the floating fruit now used as garnishes. By modern times, they did away with the punch altogether and started making cocktails that gave you the alcohol in a stiff drink and no wait.
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnishes optional.
