Sumatra Planter's Punch

A Planter's Punch is always delicious and easy to drink. If you have friends over, it is easy to batch as well. But the many ingredients in these punches make them hard to whip up quickly at the bar, which is where this photo was taken. Luckily this recipe uses Swedish Punsch as a shorthand for other ingredients to make your life easier.

Swedish Punsch is a rum-based spirit flavored with lemon, cardamon and clove. It is commercially available in Scandinavia, but not easy to find in the states. I have a homemade recipe, though. The rest of the drink falls out in much the same order as a typical Planter's Punch.
  • 1 oz. Swedish Punsch
  • 1 oz. Gold Rum (Vitae used)
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. 151-proof Demerara rum 
Mix all ingredients except Demerara rum with cracked ice in a shaker or blender. Shake or blend briefly to combine and pour into an Old Fashioned glass or large balloon goblet. Drizzle 151-proof rum on top and garnish at will.
