The Dark & Stormy Cocktail

A few weeks ago, I discovered my new signature cocktail, the Dark & Stormy. It’s an old island favorite from Bermuda, made with ginger beer, rum, and a splash of lime juice. I created my own version of the drink by swapping out the ginger beer with ginger ale and adding a little agave nectar. The spicy and sweet combination of the rum and the ginger together make for the perfect evening cocktail.
