I’ll just come out at say that this is not a traditional or authentic dark and stormy recipe! I’ve found this one to be equally delicious- if not better, for summer with its lighter taste and appearance. A traditional dark and stormy is made with Gosling’s rum and homemade ginger beer. I’ve had an authentic dark and stormy, but find it more appropriate for a crisp fall day or cold winter evening. Give this version a try!
-1 bottle of ginger beer
-2 oz. dark rum
-1/4 lime, juiced
-1 slice of lime, for rim
Squeeze lime into tall glass full of ice. Pour in ginger beer. Add shot of rum and stir. Garnish rim with slice of lime.
