The traditional dark & stormy is made with dark Bermuda rum, ginger beer, and a squeeze of lime. Ginger beer has no more beer in it than ginger ale has ale, but it tastes zippier. We’ve upped the lime and replaced the rum with a dash of molasses (what rum is distilled from in the first place, and a very good source of iron, calcium, potassium, and other minerals).
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp. blackstrap molasses
1 cup ginger beer
Garnish: lime wedge
Directions: In a wide glass, add ice, lime juice, and molasses, then pour ginger beer over all. Stir well, as molasses is thick, particularly when cold. Float the lime wedge on top. Your average bar may not have molasses on hand; see what else the bartender can offer!
