Dark and Stormy

dark-and-stormy-verticalThe classic Dark and Stormy is a summertime staple that matches the molasses-rich flavors of dark rum with the spice of ginger beer. Lime juice can be adjusted to taste, but at The Stables Bar in Australia, they squeeze about half a lime for best results.

2 oz. dark Bermuda rum (Gosling’s)
½ oz. fresh lime juice
Ginger beer
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon
Glass: highball
Garnish: lime slice

Mix the ingredients together in the glass. Add ice and stir until chilled. Garnish.
