This Planter’s Punch Cocktail is a classic rum punch drink with fruit juices and grenadine that will knock you on your butt.
While you are reading this on a Tuesday, this was technically Tispy Monday for me this week.
And while you are reading this I will be either getting or recovering from a root canal (yay fun).
This week’s Date Night In theme was super fun for me.
I went into it trying to plan a date for hubs and I as if I were still in college (undergrad) and what would that look like?
So I thought back to my college boyfriend Dave and how we spent our senior year.
Honestly I’m amazed I graduated with such good grades. 🙂
As that year was a lot of time at the bar.
Back then there was a sports bar called Mulligans that had Two For One Night on yep…Tuesdays (yay).
And I always chose the drink that carried the most bang for your buck…which for that bar was Planter’s Punch Cocktail.
A tall sweet pink concoction that I sucked down while eating chicken wing after chicken wing (which is what we are having for our date night dinner 🙂 ).
This one actually took a little time to get right.
So it wasn’t really tipsy Monday it was more like down and out drunk Monday…kidding.
The one thing missing that I realized was the bar used to put Amaretto and Southern Comfort in theirs as well as rum.
Well I’m guessing on the Southern Comfort but there was definitely Amaretto in there.
Not having had one of these bad boys since I was in undergrad I’m going on memory on whether this tastes like the kind I had.
I’m pretty sure this was it…maraschino cherries and all.
I will say this for them…they are super easy to drink and will kind of knock you on your butt a little. 😛
And last but not least it’s a great day to buy my cookbook.
