In honor of the identity crisis story permeating the news the last few days, we give you the Dark N’ Stormy cocktail. A perfect concoction combining the smooth, rich taste of dark rum and the light spiciness of ginger beer, this might be one of our favorite classics. Keeping it simple never felt so good. Maybe we should rename it “The Rachel“? Cheers!
Dark n’ Stormy
2 ounces dark rum
3 ounces of chilled ginger beer
1 candied ginger slice
1 lime wheel
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the rum and lime juice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Stir in the ginger beer. Skewer the ginger slice and lime wheel and garnish the cocktail.
