Fall Cocktail

With the weather starting to change, and a bit of a nip in the air today, we decided to give an old favorite cocktail of ours a fall twist.  We love a good Dark & Stormy on a summer’s day to cut through the heat.  This drink is very similar to a Dark & Stormy with rum and ginger beer, but we added apple cider for an autumnal flavoring.

The Ingredients.

Aged Rum, Ginger Beer, Apple Cider & Lime

We used an Aged Rum, Ginger Beer, Apple Cider, and a squeeze of lime.

A typical Dark & Stormy uses portions of:

  • 2oz rum
  • 3 oz ginger beer.

We then added 2oz of Apple Cider for fall flavoring.

We topped the drinks off with with a slice of apple skewered with a wedge of lime.  DSC02466

I also prepared a few small bites to go with our cocktails.  We had baked dates filled with goat cheese and olive crackers with cheese.  Yum.

Maybe we should call it a Dark Autumn Storm.  It was tasty.

Cheers!
