Drink Recipes

Planter’s Punch

7 ounces (210 ml) dark rum
2 oz (60 ml) fresh lime juice
4 Tbs (60 ml) powdered sugar
A dash of Angostura bitters
1 cup (250 ml) finely crushed or shaved ice
Freshly grated nutmeg
Fresh fruit for garnish (optional)

Combine 6 ounces (180 ml) of the rum, lime juice, sugar, and bitters in a
cocktail shaker
(or glass jar with a tightly fitting lid) and shake vigorously 9 or 10 time.
Pour the
contents, unstrained, into two 10 oz (300 ml) highball glasses. Place a teaspoon
upside
down in each glass and very slowly pour the remaining rum over the back of the
spoons,
letting it trickle onto the surface of the drink so that the rum floats on top.
Grate a
little nutmeg over the drink and serve at once.

This drink is usually garnished with some sort of fresh fruit. You may add a
maraschino
cherry and a pineapple wedge or strip of banana to each drink, or slit slices of
lime or
orange from the peel to the center and slip them over the rims of the glasses.
Makes 2
drinks.
