Drinking with Stormy Daniels

I met Stormy Daniels a few years ago at a Maypole dance.  I offered to buy her a drink, and after signing a non disclosure agreement, she asked for a Dark and Stormy.  The Dark and Stormy is an easy drinking cocktail combining dark rum and ginger beer.  It also happens to be the national cocktail of Bermuda.

Ginger is finding its way onto cocktail recipes and this drink is bang on with the times.  I’ll be mixing a pitcher this weekend. aquavit


2 oz dark rum

1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 oz sugar syrup

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Ginger Beer



Shake all ingredients except the ginger beer with ice.  Strain into an ice filled glass.  Top with ginger beer.  Garnish with a wedge of lime.

For a twist, replace the dark rum with Jack Daniels.  Have one for Stormy.
