A lot of summer cocktails are basically the drink equivalent of Starbursts-sweeter than sweet with a hint of fruit. Now there is nothing wrong with that; after all, I am the girl who has Starbursts for a snack at 8 am. However, sometimes you just want a little something less sugary. You know, for the sake of your teeth. I think ginger is an unexpected flavor to find in summer drinks, but it tastes oh so refreshing! For those who want to mix it up for cookouts and hangouts, a Dark n’ Stormy may hit the spot!
Dark n’ Stormy
- 2 oz. of dark rum (I usually go with Goslings, but any will do!)
- 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 3 oz. chilled ginger beer
- Optional lime wheel!
