DARK AND STORMY
Sitting here at Baron's Cove in Sag Harbor waiting for friends to arrive and ease dropping on the convo. Turns out the drink of the sum is the "Dark and Stormy". According to my reliable sources, aka the bartender, this is what everyone is ordering and they can't keep this Fever-Tree Ginger Beer in stock! Not gonna lie, I'm pretty intrigued and have a little FOMO. As it is almost Labor Day and I have yet to throw back the "it drink". Here's the facts...it looks amazing and all the cool kids are drinking it.
The detailed skinny..
2 ounces of Goslings Rum
5 ounces Fever-Tree Ginger Beer
Splash of lime juice
The key is to pour the rum first into a highball Then the ginger beer so it looks layered, aka, "stormy" and then add the splash of lime.
Ordered, snapped a photo and sipped away... it's heavenly!
