Dark and Stormy Recipe

Come Party With Me: End of Summer BBQ — Drinks

From kalimotxo to caipirinhas to sangria, I've made a lot of interesting cocktails this Summer. One I haven't enjoyed, yet, I plan on serving them at my End of Summer barbecue, is the dark and stormy.

A refreshing mixture of rich, dark rum, and fizzy, slightly spicy ginger beer, the dark and stormy is a classic cocktail. Don't be fooled by the ginger beer, it's actually not beer, but a nonalcoholic, super-flavorful, incredibly fizzy ginger ale that can be found at Whole Foods.

I'll also have chilled wine, beer, and sodas for those who choose to imbibe something other than rum. To check out the recipe for the dark and stormy,

Dark and Stormy Recipe 2009-08-26 15:28:11

Ingredients

  1. Ice cubes
  2. 1 to 2 juicy limes (you need 1-ounce juice and a wheel for garnish)
  3. 1 ounce golden rum,(recommended: Mt Gay)
  4. 6 ounces ginger beer
  5. 1/2 ounce dark rum, (recommended: Myers's)

Directions

  1. Fill a highball glass or large wine goblet with ice cubes.
  2. Add the lime juice and the golden rum. Top off with the ginger beer and stir lightly.
  3. Float a layer of the dark rum on top by pouring it over the back of a wide, flat spoon. (Don't worry if it doesn't float; it tastes great either way.) Garnish with the lime wheel. Drink.

Makes 1 drink.

This recipe is actually kind of a twist on the classic Dark 'n Stormy which is typically just made with Goslings Dark Rum and Barritts ginger beer. I love these.
