Cocktail-History


The Planters Punch is an IBA Official Cocktail made of Dark Rum, Lemon Juice, Grenadine Syrup and a dash of Angostura Bitters. An IBA Official Cocktail is one of many Cocktails selected by the International Bartenders Association (IBA) for use in the annual World Cocktail Competition (WCC) in bartending. As such, these mixed drinks are some of the most notable and frequently-made Cocktails by professional bartenders around the world.

 

The Cocktail has been said to have originated at the Planters Hotel in Charleston, SC, but the recipe originates in Jamaica. The September 1878 issue of the London magazine Fun listed the recipe as follows: "A wine-glass with lemon juice fill, of sugar the same glass fill twice / Then rub them together until / The mixture looks smooth, soft, and nice. / Of rum then three wine glasses add, / And four of cold water please take. A Drink then you'll have that's not bad — / At least, so they say in Jamaica.


Classic Recipe:
