    Hack What You Drink

Dark and Stormy

Seeing as we’re coming in to summer it seems only right that I look at more highball drinks.  You know them and I would certainly hope you love them.  Well, at least some of them.  When made right these simple cocktails can really be a perfect drink for the summer.

On that note, it’s been raining in Boulder pretty much non-stop since Friday afternoon.  Truly summery no?  It’s not been anything particularly major, but it does seem like a fitting start to this week’s cocktail, the Dark and Stormy.

Dark and Stormy
2 oz Dark Rum
3 oz Ginger Beer
Lime Wedge for Garnish
1) Build in a Highball glass over ice

One slight problem.  I’ve not been able to track down ginger beer proper.  I’ve found a lot of different ginger ales, which should likely make due in a pinch, but I’d really like to find the real deal.  The good news is, it can also be made at home.  Stay tuned for progress on that one.
