Planter’s Punch

Planters punch is a drink I’ve found that guests may never have heard of, but can never get enough of!  This was Tallulah Bankhead’s favorite drink, and when she died in 1968, Time magazine noted that “she was known to romp around her apartment in the nude drinking Planter’s Punch – and sometimes greeted friends at the door in the same state of undress.”
