Dark 'N Stormy

Since the holidays are now officially over, I finally took down my tree. And while I was sweeping up the sad, prickly remains of Christmas, I thought I could use a drink.

When it comes to cocktails, I'm a keep-it-simple kinda gal. I'm also a sucker for a good name. And so I figured I would dig a Dark 'N Stormy. It sounds like the beginning of folk tale or a local legend. It evokes rolling clouds over a dark sea. Or maybe that's just the rum?


2 oz dark rum
3 oz ginger beer
lime wedge, for garnish (opt.)


1. Place ice in a tall glass, and add the rum.
2. Top with beer and lime wede, and stir.

The holidays might be over, but that means we're just one month closer to summer! Happy sipping!
