Planter’s Punch, how to make the cocktail at home

The Planter’s Punch is a rum based cocktail Dorado to which citrus juices are added, such as lime, lemon or pineapple, to give it an acid flavor and grenadine for a sweet and original touch.

Among the different juices to be added, the citrus juices may vary —because sometimes orange juice is added— however, pineapple, grenadine and angostura are always present at Planter’s Punch.

This is a fresh and tasty cocktail that in our case we have made without the orange juice, although you can add it or combine the juices to your liking. Take note of the recipe to make this caribbean punchoriginal and tasty.

Next, we serve the cocktail by pouring the contents of the shaker over the glass through the strainer so that the ice used to cool the shaker remains inside.

Once served, we can add a little mineral water, up to 50 ml, if we don’t want it to be so strong and add 4 drops of Angostura, which will give it a bitter touch. Finally, we decorate the glass with 1 slice of lime, 1 piece of pineapple and 1 cherry.
