Dark and Stormy’s

It was a dark and stormy night…

time

Thus begins many a tale of wonder, magic, and mystery…

Oh, I’m not talking about A Wrinkle in Time , but one of my favorite drinks,  the rum-and-ginger-beer “Dark & Stormy”.

A Dark and Stormy:

  • 2 oz rum
  • 5 oz ginger beer (please, do yourself a favor and find Goslings)
  • lime
  1. Pour the rum over ice in highball and fill with ginger beer. Squeeze in the lime wedge
  2. Drink

If you are feeling extremely adventurous, here’s a version I created for friends during an autumn getaway in the cabin (warning: it is potent!), called “Lost in the Storm”:

  • 2 oz Kraken Spiced Rum
  • 2 oz apple cider
  • Ginger Beer and apple wedges

Pour Kraken and cider over ice, and top with ginger beer to taste.

I also personally LOVE how easy it is to now find Moscow Mule Copper Mugs, These keep the drinks ice cold, and they’re so pretty to drink from!
