A warm weather cocktail we can really get behind, a good Dark and Stormy is the epitome of thirst quenching. Sweet and spicy from the ginger beer, tart from the lime with a nice kick from the rum and bitters. Named a Dark and Stormy because if you add the rum on top of the ginger beer it will float creating a dark layer (the rum) and a stormy layer (the ginger beer).
- Fill a highball with ice and add ginger beer.
- Gently top with rum and bitters.
- Garnish with lime wedge.
- The layered drink will look theatrical but not be properly mixed – before enjoying squeeze lime wedge over rum, drop into the drink and stir gently with straw (or your finger).
