Friday’s Vintage Cocktail: Planter’s Punch

Hello lovelies!

Today is Friday, and you now what that means, it’s time for Friday’s Vintage Cocktail! Each Friday I feature a blog where I share a cocktail from the golden age of glamour to celebrate the weekend being upon us! As always please remember to drink responsibly, and if there are any younger readers to please abide by the drinking laws in your country or state, you can always make a mocktail though!

With the weather heating up in little ol’ Western Australia I chose a rather fruity summer inspired beverage, and I may be sharing with you my most delicious cocktail yet, the Planter’s Punch! This tasty treat first appeared in a copy of the New York Times in 1908, named after Planter’s Hotel in St Louis where its said a beautiful Jamaican planter’s wife created this to cool off the hot tired workers! After a week of challenges I definitely feel cooled off after this drink!


  • 2 jiggers of dark rum.
  • Half a jigger of grenadine.
  • Half a cup of fruit juice (tropical, or a mix of juices).
  • Soda water.
  • Fresh seasonal fruit to garnish.
  • Ice cubes.


  1. Pour ingredients (minus fruit and soda water) into a shaker, and shake well with ice cubes.
  2. Strain into an opulent glass filled with ice cubes.
  3. Top with some water and garnish with fresh fruit.
  4. Drink up and enjoy!

This cocktail is the taste of summer, its fresh, delicious, and without a doubt my favourite drink I’ve made to date in my Vintage Cocktail blog series! This drink is perfect for those who like me love sweet cocktails with not too much of a potent alcohol flavour! I enjoy simple cocktails too, this one would be perfect to make in a punch bowl and add lots of fresh fruit for your guests to enjoy! I hope everyone has a truly beautiful long weekend!

More vintage blogs coming real soon!

Much love,
