This is my first cocktail recipe post and it’s a simple, but delicious one.  I likely will be adding some more cocktail recipes as I work through some at home.  I spent a week trying to get a mojito down, but spent most of that week taking a few sips and then pouring the rest out in the sink.  I have yet to master that drink, so I went with an easier cocktail.

Dark ‘n’ Stormy is best known by those who have been to Jamaica. I haven’t, but I love the drink and while I couldn’t find Gosling’s Black Seal rum, the preferred choice for this drink, I was able to find Kracken Rum which made for an excellent substitute.

Dark ‘n’ Stormy

6 ounces ginger beer
2 ounces dark rum
1 juice of one lime wedge

Combine the three ingredients and gently stir and serve over ice.
