Mother nature throws all kinds of weather our way this time of year but in this case we are the ones making things “Dark and Stormy.”
This week’s cocktail was created by sailors on long voyages who had access to rum from the tropics. They came up with a flavourful combination of ginger beer and dark rum that became popular in many port cities.
Sweet Dominican aged dark rum is brought alive by the fiery ginger beer and held together with citrus lime.
Dark and Stormy
2 oz Brugal Anjeo Rum
4 oz Fentimans Ginger Beer
1 lime wedge
Ice your glass, pour in the Brugal Anjeo Rum. Top with Fentimans Ginger Beer and squeeze a wedge of fresh lime over top before dropping it into the drink.
Use another lime wedge for a garnish.
Although this cocktail is simple to make, the different botanical brewed beverages add exceptional complexity.
Try another one of my favourites: Fentimans Curiosity Cola (a full-bodied, ginger-infused traditional cola). Use it any drink that calls for coke as the mix.
