Planter's Punch

The Planter's Punch is all show. It requires a ton of fruit garnish, but little of this fruit is used in the cocktail itself. For this reason it is a complicated preparation for bars but a relatively simple drink--which means there's little benefit for the prep. It's pretty much a Rum Sour/ Rum Collins-like drink with a lot of fruit on top to convince drinkers that there's more to it than citrus juice, rum and soda.

  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. grenadine
  • 1 tsp. simple syrup
  • club soda
  • lime slice
  • orange slice
  • pineapple spear
  • maraschino cherry
Combine rums, juices, grenadine and simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass with fresh ice. Top with club soda and garnish with fruit.
