Traditional cocktail fans would possibly wish to look away. That is my tackle the Darkish n’ Stormy cocktail from Bermuda (which is a trademarked mixture of Gosling’s rum, and spicy ginger beer). I like a Darkish n’ Stormy – they’re invigorating, simple ingesting, easy to make, and equally tasty on a seaside or in an city bar. I like them in summer season, and I like them proper now.
My Little Tweak
Some whereas again I ended utilizing ginger beer, and switched to kombucha. And never simply any kombucha, I now make them with the spiciest ginger kombucha I can discover, bonus factors if I can discover the ginger-cayenne selection. So extremely tasty. To make the drink, you are taking a splash of darkish, flavorful rum, and prime it off with kombucha (or ginger beer if you wish to play it straight). At any fee, I assumed it would be an amazing Halloween cocktail so that you can strive – as a result of, properly, the identify. But additionally, as a result of it is a cocktail everybody loves!
I am going to throw one non-compulsory wildcard in right here, solely as a result of now we have a prolific makrut lime tree. You may infuse the rum with a few lime leaves (for 5 minutes or so), and it perfumes the rum subtly. Plenty of bartenders serve Darkish n’ Stormy cocktails with a brightening splash of contemporary lime juice. This provides one other layer. So, to do that model, infuse the rum after which proceed with the recipe as written.
