The newly-opened Sandals Dunn’s River serves up this classic Jamaican cocktail to guests at their on-site rum club. The Planter’s Punch is made with fresh lime juice, grenadine, bitters and two local rums – to recreate the full Dunn’s Rum Club experience, sip the cocktail while playing a game of Jamaican-style dominoes.
