Perfect Storm Cocktail

72

This autumnal take on the Dark and Stormy, a classic boater's beverage, is a swell choice once the weather turns cool.

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 ounce ginger brew (such as Reed's)
  • 1 1/2 ounces apple cider
  • 2 ounces dark rum (such as Gosling's Black seal)

Directions

  1. Split a vanilla bean lengthwise, scrape out the inside and add it to the sugar, setting aside the pod. Stir until the sugar is speckled with bits of vanilla. Dip the rim of a glass in water, then in the sugar to coat. Mix ginger brew, apple cider, and rum in a measuring cup. Pour over ice into glass and garnish with half the vanilla bean.

    *Much* better than wimpy Reed's ginger beer is Fever Tree. This lone ingredient makes or breaks a Moscow Mule or a Dark 'n Stormy. A full, rich, intensely ginger flavor provides great backbone & structure to a cocktail.
