It was a dark and stormy night…
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”.
- 2 oz rum
- 5 oz ginger beer (please, do yourself a favor and find Goslings)
- Pour the rum over ice in highball and fill with ginger beer. Squeeze in the lime wedge
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!
