Dark & Stormy Cocktail

This Hook’s Rub Thirsty Thursday we wanted to get into the early spring season! For those rainy days of Spring, the Dark and Stormy cocktail is what you need! In this easy drink, we mix lime juice and ginger beer then topping it off with an Appleton Estate dark rum floater!

  • Cocktail Jigger
  • Sharp Knife & cutting board 

    1. Fill your rocks glass with ice.
    2. Pour in 1/2 oz of lime juice and about 4 oz of ginger beer, leaving enough room for the rum floater on top.
    3. Pour 2 oz of rum on top of the ginger beer.

    5. Enjoy responsibly for those 21 years old or older.
