Classic cocktail enthusiasts may want to look away. This is my take on the Bermuda Dark n & # 39; Stormy cocktail (which is a trademark of Gosling rum and the spicy ginger beer). I love a dark n & # 39; Stormy – it's refreshing, easy to drink, simple to do, and just as delicious on a beach or in an urban bar. They like summer and they like it now.
My little pinch
Some time back I stopped using ginger beer and switched to kombucha. And not just some kombucha, now I make them with the spikuest kombucha ginger I can find, bonus points if I can find the ginger-Red pepper variety. Extremely tasty. To make the drink, take a dip in a dark, tasty rum and unlock it with kombucha (or ginger beer if you want to play it straight). Anyway, I thought it would be a great Halloween cocktail to try – because, well, the name. But also, because it's a cocktail everyone loves!
I'll throw an optional wildcard here, just because we have a makrut lime producer. You can paint the rum with a pair of lime leaves (for five minutes or so), and flavors the rum thin. Many bartenders are offering Dark n & # 39; Stormy cocktails with a bright spoon of fresh lime juice. This adds another layer. So, to make this version, inject the rum and then proceed with the recipe as written.
