2-3 oz Goslings dark rum
Juice of half a lime
Lots of ice
Fill rest of tall glass with ginger root beer
The end of summer suddenly has me drinking rum - must be the build up of atmospheric pressure in the Atlantic that made me crave a dark and stormy this week. The weather is hot and humid and it was threatening to rain all week but we've gotten away lightly but this is still as refreshing. For our ginger beer we accidentally picked up a ginger root beer and though (being non-American perhaps?) I'm not a root beer fan, the lime juice and dark rum cut the medicinal taste and let's just say there wasn't any left in the glass. Wonder what it would be like with a dollop of ice cream?
