Myrtle Bank Punch Recipe

This is the 1941 version, published by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry via the private papers of Mariano Licudine – a Don the Beachcomber bartender. Quite different from the Trader Vic’s version and clearly following common Don the Beachcomber recipe traditions.

Overall this is pretty good, though I tasted more grapefruit and less honey than I expected. Maybe I had a bad grapefruit.
