Flanders’ Planter’s Punch
Homer: Hey, Flanders, next time why don’t you put a little alcohol in it!
Ned: Au contraire, Simpson. It has three shots of rum, a jigger of bourbon, and just a little daberilla of creme de cassis for flavor.
Homer: Really? Well, I do have a warm sense of well-being, and I sheem to be slurring my speech. You’re right! Gimme another.

According to “college boy” Ned Flanders, he has a “Phd in mixology” . This is somewhat surprising given that he doesn’t include the full recipe for his drink: Flanders’ Planter’s Punch. I mean, unless he actually intends for Homer to drink about 5 shots of alcohol in one drink? Given how quickly Homer gets drunk, this isn’t exactly a stretch. But at the same time I really think this drink is supposed to have some mixer added to it, Ned just doesn’t mention what that was supposed to be.
- 3 Shots of Rum
- 1 Jigger of Bourbon
- 1 Daberilla of Creme de Cassis
- Gag ice cube with fly inside (optional)
Mix all liquor ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a glass.
The Flanders’ Planter’s Punch is one strong drink! And since I don’t really like drinking straight liquor all mixed together, I only had a few sips in before giving up and adding some mixer. For me, that mixer was Pepsi and suddenly things start to taste a lot better. I think this would work equally well with Sprite or something clear. Or you could just drink it straight if you want to look down your neighbors dress and have a somewhat good excuse for doing that.
