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.
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.
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.
Do you have a favorite fall cocktail? Be sure to share, so I can try it out as well.
