Real Dark 'n Real Stormy
There's something to be said for drinks that only contain two ingredients and an optional garnish. If you get the two ingredients in the right proportions, they can be just as satisfying, or moreso, than a cocktail that requires 14 tools, a spotter, and a half hour to make. We've always been fans of the Dark and Stormy, and Jeffrey Morganthaler has put together a nice little piece on them in anticipation of summer.
He even includes recommendations for what brands of ginger beer and rum to buy, and we get the impression if you try to use Schweppes or Canada Dry, he'll find out somehow, come to your house and call you out. We're pretty sure you wouldn't want that.
Find the Dark and Stormy recipe, along with the ginger beer recipe, at Jeffrey's site.
