Jean Lafitte’s Walk the Plank Pirate Punch By Suzanne Johnson

Captain Jean Lafitte, the dashing and devious early 19th-century pirate of the Gulf, is currently living in his undead form in the Eudora Welty Suite of New Orleans’ posh Hotel Monteleone. 

Unlike his rum-swilling predecessors, this pirate prefers a good brandy and, for special occasions, this Walk the Plank Punch, which he believes will eventually wear down the resolve of the oh-so-tempted (and tempting) wizard, DJ Jaco.


1-1/2 ounces Courvoisier (Jean sez: “Bah, you must consume cheap swill? Then use any palatable brandy or cognac)

1 ounce Cointreau (Jean sez: “Mon Dieu, Jolie. Must we cheapen everything? Very well. Use Triple Sec if you insist.”)

½ ounce fresh lemon juice


Rim a chilled cocktail glass with sugar. 

Pour the ingredients into a shaker with ice. 



Kiss the pirate.
