Old-Fashioned Jamaican Punch

I did a bit of research for punch recipes and the earliest recipe construction I could find was in the form of a poem from the New York Times in 1908.  The poem does not give ingredients rather it gives an overall suggested form or punch construction.

PLANTER’S PUNCH
(from the 1908 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.

 

From this poem, and in the spirit of poetic license, I have designed an old-fashioned  Jamaican Rum Punch using the method of construction from the poem in the 1908 New York Times.

JAMAICAN RUM PUNCH
(using the 1908 New York Times Poem Version)

2 cups of Lemon Juice & Lime Juice  (Take two of sour )
1 3/8 cup Pineapple Juice
1/8 cup Grenadine (To one and a half of sweet)
1 !/2 cups Appleton 151 Overproof Rum
1 1/2 cups Appleton VX (Of Old Jamaica pour three strong)
2 1/2 cups Ginger ale
3/4 cups Orange Juice
several dashes of bitters
Ice cubes (And add four parts of weak)

Garnish the punch bowl with tropical flowers, and a variety fruit slices, pieces and chunks.
