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.
