A traditional Dark ‘N’ Stormy is a highball cocktail with a mix of dark rum and ginger beer. I had some ginger beer on hand from my fall-themed apple cider Moscow Mule, so it was time to re-purpose some booze!
The main thing that makes this Halloween-themed is quite literally just the name change. Hey, I like when a theme comes together easily.
Make a batch of these on your own dark and stormy spooky night and prepare to get silly. Drink responsibly, kiddos!
- 2 oz dark rum
- 3 oz ginger beer
- 1/4 ounce lime juice (optional)
- Lime wedges (optional)
- Combine the rum, ginger beer, and optional lime juice in a tall glass with ice cubes.
- Garnish with optional lime wedges.
If you’re a purist, feel free to omit the lime juice.
