Colonel Beach’s Plantation Punch

Searching something to drink in my small library of tiki drinks books, I took the Beachbum Berry Remixed of the master Jeff Berry, the real bible of tiki recipes. I was looking for a drink with ginger beer, because I had a bottle of Fentiman’s opened and I want to finish it…

I found a recipe of one of the fathers of tiki drinks: Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt  aka Don the Beachcomber.

And well…I did it…and you could try to do this at home too.
