The Perfect Storm Cocktail

Here's a pretty dope cocktail I had the pleasure of trying last week. It's a variation of a Dark n Stormy.

1 1/2 oz Gran Marnier
Lime Juice
Ginger Beer
2 drops of Angostura Bitters

*You can even do half and half w/ Gran Marnier and Cointreau if you feel like it.* It kinda adds a bit of a unique tang but the Ginger beer brings some much needed closure to the mix.

At first, I was skeptical but it actually turned out pretty good. I'm shocked at how balanced this tastes.

Dark 'N' Stormy Cocktail

This is by far one of my favorite cocktails to drink. Whether it's in a rocks, highball, or Collins glass, it doesn't matter. People like to mix it up with a regular dark or spiced rum. However, I prefer it with the original Goslings Dark Seal Rum and the matching Ginger Beer. That's how it was originally made in Bermuda. I def love the island vibes with this drink because the spice, the kick, and just that stormy element gives it a certain zone. Authenticity is everything!

2 oz Goslings Dark Seal Rum
6 oz of Goslings Ginger Beer
Lime Wedge or Wheel
