August 16 – Day 228

National Rum Day !!

I do love me a mojito from time to time, but rum is most definitely not my go to spirit

I branched out, however, and honoured this sweet liquor by making a Dark & Stormy cocktail!

You will need:

  • 2 ounces dark rum
  • 3 ounces ginger beer
  • ½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Lime wheel or wedge, for garnish

Build the cocktail on ice, leaving rum for last and ‘float’ it on the top

That’s what I do at work all the time – I made a few of these and the patrons were loving them
