I only drink this on two occasions, when I am in love and when I am not: Dark and stormy
How to Make Dark and stormy
less than 30 mins
no cooking required
- 50ml/2fl oz dark rum)
- 10ml/2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 handfuls ice
- ginger beer
- mint sprig and lime
Put the rum and lime juice into a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice, then shake vigorously to combine the ingredients.
Strain the mixture into a collins glass over fresh ice using a hawthorne cocktail strainer. If you don’t have a strainer, any kitchen sieve will work just as well.
Top with ginger beer and stir gently, then garnish with the mint and lime wheel, if using.
