The Dark ‘N Stormy-Another Use for Ginger Beer

January 29th, 2010 · No Comments

Dark ‘N Stormy
1.5 oz Gosling (use no other) dark rum
4 oz ginger beer (I like Barritt’s, but any will do)
lime juice & garnish (your choice see below)

Everywhere I read this is a drink for a hot day, but I like it in the cold too.  Spicy and flavorful.  Dark and rich, but not cloyingly so.

Alicia likes this with lime juice because it tends to cut the sugary molasses-ish taste the rum brings and the bitterness of the beer, but like it sans lime.
