The Bon Vivant’s Companion of 1933 credits Jerry Thomas at the Planter’s Hotel in St. Louis around 1840, for creating this drink. The charm of the Planter’s Punch is its refreshing mellowness – not to be interpreted as sweetness.

I updated it for Vaquero with a touch of unsweetened passionfruit puree in place of the traditional orange juice.
