Dark & Stormy
A cousin of the Moscow Mule, the Dark and Stormy pairs spicy ginger beer with dark rum. When prepared in the traditional way, the rum floats to the top and the drink lives up to its infamous name.
- 1½ oz Premium Dark Rum
- 5 oz Q Mixers Ginger Beer
- ½ oz Lime Juice
Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour in the Q Mixers Ginger Beer and squeeze in the lime. Top with the rum so it floats on the top, looking like a dark storm cloud that will force you to stay at the bar all afternoon.
Because Q Mixers Ginger Beer is less sweet than other ginger beers, it leaves more room to add a modifier. Try adding 2 oz fresh juice – pineapple for a Summer Storm or apple cider for a Dark & Cidery.
