What I’m Drinking: The Dark and Stormy

Sometimes, very little needs to be said. This is one of those times. I’m drinking Dark and Stormys cause July, especially, demands them. Don’t disagree, or I’ll cut you off. There, I said it. Now drink your drink and keep quite. Oh, use the below recipe from Dark Spirits. Now back to your drink.dark-and-stormy

Dark and Stormy

Ice cubes

2 ounces dark rum (I think Mount Gay is dandy here)

Chilled ginger beer (Rachel’s is the best in the land, so works well here)

Lime wedge for garnish

1. Fill a highball glass three-quarters full with ice cubes. Add the rum.

2. Fill the glass with ginger beer, but don’t be wacky about it (no drink becomes a favorite if it bubbles over and stickies up the counter).

3. Squeeze the lime wedge over the drink, and then let it slide on in. Stir, but briefly.
