Planter’s Punch (Jamaica)

The Planter's Punch is a fruity, rum-based drink that is believed to have been created by British settlers in the 19th century. The name comes from a popular mix of rum and fruit juice. It was first mentioned in the 1802 diary of William Henry Trescot, who was an American-born plantation owner and wine merchant on Long Island. This cocktail was a hot commodity among the elite of society at the time. It doesn't taste like any other rum drink. It's the perfect summer tipple, with a hint of lime and spice, plus an added bonus: The SC Demerara syrup recipe below!
