Our July #DrinkoftheMonth choice is the classic Dark & Stormy! It’s a refreshing and easy to make cocktail for those of y’all that want to spice up your weekend nigths in, but don’t wanna break the bank.
It’s known as Bermuda’s unofficial drink and was popularized by sailors around the world. Legend has it that it even got it’s iconic name because sailors though the cocktail color reminded them of a dark and stormy sky.
The ingredients are fairly simple:
- Dark Rum ( we prefer spiced rum! )
- Ginger Beer
- Lime juice ( and a wedge )
Sorry to say, but we didn’t go off measurements this time around, our best advice? Let the universe guide you xx
- Fill class with Ice
- Build the ingredients, adding the lime juice if you please (for a true Bermudan style, skip it!)
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
