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

*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.
