Dark and Stormy: Cheers to the Winter Solstice

Happy Winter Solstice! Today is the shortest day of the year (or the longest day of the year if you are in the Southern hemisphere). I love to make a meal that pertains to it being the longest, darkest day of the year. Soups, stews, and chilis are totally necessary tonight. As are a warm fire and a big blanket. I love to test out new cocktail recipes at home with my hubby. In honor of today being the darkest day of the year-and maybe even in some places stormy-I'm shaking up a cocktail called a Dark and Stormy. To mix this at your home and drink it in front of your fireplace,
