Planter's Punch!

The first known print reference to Planter's Punch is in the August 8, 1908 edition of the New York Times:
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.
At Three Dots and a Dash, Paul McGee riffs on Dick Moano's 1950 version of the punch: Puerto Rican Rum, Haitian Rum, Jamaican Rum, Lime, Grapefruit, Grenadine, Angostura Bitters.
