Summertime has us dreaming of island time: warm breezes, no plans, and an afternoon swaying in a hammock with a cold drink in hand. Sweet vacation bliss! Whether you have plans to jet out of town, or you’re simply interested in a backyard picnic, let’s add a little tropical flair to our weekend with this tiki cocktail classic.
By using a spiced infusion kit, this rum drink takes on a new personality with an extra kick of spicy ginger and aromatic star anise. We like to top ours with plenty of crushed ice and a float sweet ginger beer.
Here’s a hot tip: on hot days, try freezing your ginger beer in a skewer mold and let it keep your drink extra frosty.
Simple to whip up and a crowd pleaser at every get together, it might be named the Dark & Stormy, but all you’ll be feeling after a sip is bright sunshine.
