It’s been a great end to winter here in Sydney with twenty plus days pulling themselves over the horizon. Unfortunately, today is looking so crash hot. The wind and clouds have rolled over the city and it feels Dark ‘n’ Stormy.
Perfect for the cocktail of the same name. Here in Australia, it’s most commonly made with Bundaberg Rum and their ginger beer as well. The original drink is from Bermuda, and the Goslings Distillery holds a trademark over the beverage, but only for the islands themselves. The local ginger beer, Barrits, has plenty of ginger bite, but is famous for being light on the burn.
The Dark ‘n’ Stormy
Add 60 mls of Dark Rum (I’m currently drinking one of the last bottles of Tahiti Dark in mine) to a well iced glass. squeeze in a few segments of lime and top it off with ginger beer.
It’s one of those drinks you can serve with a little jug of ginger beer on the side in summer, should anyone want to lengthen out the drink.
If you’re feeling fancy, or trying to impress, you can spilt the drink in the photo above, it looks good, but doesn’t do much for the flavour of the drink.
Have a good weekend. I’m off to try Low 302, review next week.
