Planter's Punch!


The first known print reference to Planter's Punch was in the August 8, 1908 edition of The New York Times:


PLANTER'S PUNCH

This recipe I give to thee,
Dear brother in the heat.
Take two of sour (lime let it be)
To one and a half of sweet,
Of Old Jamaica pour three strong,
And add four parts of weak.
Then mix and drink. I do no wrong —
I know whereof I speak.

Where did I put that.. probably mis-posted this somewhere..

Blue Hawaiian

3/4 oz light rum
3/4 oz vodka
1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
3 oz pineapple juice
1 oz sweet and sour mix


Combine ingredients and mix well. If serving with ice, mix the ingredients in a blender. Serve in a tall glass. Garnish with a brightly colored umbrella.

(can also use coconut liquor instead of sweet and sour)

Time to revive this thread.

When I first arrived here, none of my friends had heard of a Schorle.

I have a strong feeling, I started the wine cooler craze in my neighborhood, as it was first maketed here. My loss, as I didn't have the brains to come up with that idea or Seti would be rolling in $

The original wine cooler(learned in early 70's.. Southern california)

50% rose wine (flavorful, but not too complex)
50% 7-up
Pour both over ice.

wine with 7UP ?!
I mean german Schorle (half wine half fizzy mineral water) is bad enough...

'Berliner Weisse mit Schuss' OTOH...
berlin white with shot, is a beer with some raspberry or woodruff syrup added.
Very refreshing and highy deceptive as you don't really taste the alcohol.
Very popular with the ladies in the '20ies. Might have contributed to Berlin's reputation in that time of having women of loose morals.

For a while I was giving my mother and sister a case each of this stuff for Christmas. We were talking after presents were given one year and I discovered my sister was turning it into wine coolers. I had to bite my lip hard and hold my breath. I don't give her wine any more because she is unable to take it. My mother still gets her wine.

Message 1018397 - Posted: 22 Jul 2010, 11:57:01 UTC - in response to Message 1018385.  

same idea.. take some barely palatable wine, combine with seven up, and you ended up with a beverage of about the strength of beer that would survive being poured over ice. I remember using almaden, and some other "jug" wines for the purpose.

"Sangria" was also a hit about that time, although not a personal favorite. The wine cooler makings traveled well in a styrofoam chest(this was the 70's.. no body knew how environmentally disasterous those things were). bag of ice, bottle of the finest screw top wine, bottle of seven up, bathing suits on under jeans and t-shirts and flip flops. and of course 1 towel each and we were set for a day at the beach.

We could always tell who was not local.. because they brought blankets and umbrellas and huge ice chests crammed full of canned beverages and blue ice
and spent half their day setting up and picking up. For the locals.. lay out your towel, set the ice chest on the windward side of them, roll off the jeans and t-shirts.. and straight into the surf.

when we had enough come back.. shake the sand out of the towels.. dry off.. lay them back down and lay down. End of the day.. put any trash in the ice chest(lots of room where the ice used to be) get dressed and head home.

Ah Almaden. That brings back memories of a misspent youth. When I arrived back in Canada after 4 years hard time at a SoCal university, I was amazed to find that in Alberta Almaden was A Fancy Imported Wine.

Anybody else remember a California wine in the early 70s called Zapple? It was apple wine, with (allegedly) cinnamon in it. I discovered it because it was always on sale.

I remember Zapple.. and it definately had cinnamon in it. On a par in quality with Boones Farm.

Oh .. That brings to mind a non-drink recipe...

take several mandarin(mandarin orange) sections, place in a large wine glass
Pour plum wine (kikkoman makes some.. it is WAY sweet, but for this it works great) until covered.

Serve chilled for dessert.

oooohhhhhh plum wine....

German (foreign) restaurants usually give you a spirit 'on the house' at the end of the meal - greeks go for Metaxa or ouzo, italian sherry or grappa and chinese? exactly. plum wine.

I think you will need the coffee slightly bigger. Ok, a lot bigger. Let's presume you added some alcohol to stay on topic ;)
