Recipe: Dark and Stormy Cocktail

Today is my honey's birthday and our featured cocktail is the Moscow Mule.  That got me thinking about other cocktails with ginger beer.  Enter: Dark and Stormy.  Both Dark and Stormy and Moscow Mule are three ingredient cocktails that are simple to make and have great flavor.  Cheers!

Dark and Stormy

  • Dark rum -- 2 ounces per drink
  • Ginger beer -- 4-5 ounces per drink
  • Limes -- half a lime per drink


  1. Fill a lowball glass with ice. 
  2. Squeeze half a lime over the ice.
  3. Add 2 ounces dark rum. 
  4. Top with ginger beer and lightly stir.


A Moscow Mule is the same, just with vodka instead of rum.

We bought ginger beer at our local BevMo.  Please note that ginger ale is not the same as ginger beer.  Ginger beer is spicier and, in my opinion, much yummier.
