Las Vegas gets its dark and stormy summer monsoon days. However, it’s still too darn hot for a comforting hot toddy even at Lake Mead on a beach or up at the Mt. Charleston Lodge.
Here’s a recipe for a quite delightful cool toddy cocktail that will leave you unmindful of the humidity. Sit back and relax. Enjoy the patter of rain, the roll of thunder and even a flash of lightning or two while you sip and savor the dark rum, spicy ginger and tangy lime juice of a Dark & Stormy.
Dark & Stormy Cocktail
- 2 ounces rum — dark rum
- 3 ounces ginger beer
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- Collins glass
Combine the rum, the ginger beer and the lime juice, which is optional, in a tall glass full of ice cubes. Stir and drink.
