Oscuro y Tempestuoso (Dark ‘n Stormy?)


Still on my Ginger kick, I decided to make a simple cocktail [my way] – The Dark ‘n Stormy.  I guess I can’t really even call it a Dark ‘n Stormy, since the recipe is trademarked.  Anyway, my twist is the addition of Lime Juice and Fresh Ginger.  I think it really livens up the drink. You decide.  
 
Oscuro y Tempestuoso

Ginger Beer
3 oz  Dark Rum
1/2 Key Lime
 Fresh Ginger

Muddle a few slices of Ginger with the Lime.  Add the Dark Rum (the darker the better).  Fill a highball glass with Ice and strain the Rum mixture over it.  Top with Ginger Beer and stir to combine.  Garnish with a Lime Wedge.



Dark ‘n Stormy.
