Caribbean Style Planter's Punch

Recipes

While in college, I spent a summer week sailing in the British Virgin Islands.  I learned many refreshing (and strong!) mixed drinks from the islands.  My favorite was the Planter's Punch, made with three rums, sweet orange and pineapple juice, refreshingly tart lime juice, and a dash of grenadine.  This is a fantastic summer drink that is not too sweet for a fruit punch, and as strong as you want it.
