Dark and Stormy goes Super Stormy

One of our favourite summer cocktails is the famous Dark and Stormy, a mix of Goslings and non-alcoholic ginger beer; and yes, it does have to be Grosling’s rum, it was MADE for this. While other rum will do in a pinch, the flavor profile of Groslings and the spiciness of a good ginger beer is unmatched.

We’ve come up with a lovely twist on the Dark and Stormy that we’re eager to share with all the lushes of the world.  The weekend had arrived after a long hard week of work and we had decided it would be a weekend of boozing. While in the liquor store we spotted a bottle of Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer, a product we hadn’t seen since our travels in England.  It’s as good as Jamaican ginger beer,  which is nice and spicy, with the bonus of alcohol!

So, feeling eager to dip our toes into debauchery, we decided to replace our usual Jamaican non-alcoholic ginger beer with the alcoholic  British version – Crabbie’s (4% alcohol).  Not only was it delicious, it was also dangerous.  It didn’t taste any stronger than a typical Dark and Stormy, so one can easily get carried away.

Bellow you’ll find the recipe, and do use a lot of lime, it’s essential to the end flavour! The chunks of lime contrast and balance nicely against the picante ginger beer giving it a smoothness.
