Dark ‘n’ Stormy

MMM, tasty. apparently in some places in australia they have this drink pre-mixed and on tap. I’m going, that’s all there is to it. I’ve added my own twist to it (slushisisation) but ice cubes work just fine if you’re impatient.
Rum (pref Jamaican eg Appleton’s or Myers’s)
1/4 of a lime
Ginger Beer
1. Get a plastic bottle of ginger beer and pour a glassful out. Place the bottle in the freezer for a good few hours, you’re aiming for a slushy like drink.
2. When the GB is just right you should be able to squeeze it out of the bottle into a rocks glass.
3. Pour the rum over the top but no more than a double, there’ll be plenty of time for that when you have no tastebuds left.
4. Squeeze and drop the lime in… Bingo!
Alternatively just add the ice first instead of freezing the GB. Also Myers’s Rum looks really cool in this drink because it gives that gradient effect from dark to GB colour.

    I like the idea of the dark-n-stormy slushy. Have you tried it with Gosling’s Black Seal?
