Dark and Stormy – A Classic Cocktail!
If you’re looking for an easy cocktail, it doesn’t get much easier than a Dark and Stormy. All you need are two ingredients and a lime wedge. The only tricky part of a dark and stormy is deciding your ratio between the ginger beer (I used my favorite – Saranac) and the dark rum. No one seems to agree, or rather everyone seems to agree to disagree. Chow gives a ration of 2 ounces of rum to 6 ounces of ginger beer. Rachael Ray gives a ration of 2 ounces of rum to 10 ounces of ginger beer! Michael Ruhlman gives a ratio of 3 ounces or rum to 3 ounces of ginger beer.
Needless to say, I don’t need to tell you what side of the fence Mr. Grey was on. While the even half and half split of Mr. Rhulman was tempting, we settled on a 2 ounces of dark rum to 4 ounces of ginger beer (if for no other reason than our ginger beer came in a 12 ounce bottle and this ratio allowed for 3 drinks.)
