In lieu of a Manhattan Monday post, I needed something with a little more kick. Some Monday’s are just like that. Growing up in the south, I learned to love spice and especially jerk chicken. Another Jamaican export, the Dark ‘N Stormy cocktail calls for spiced rum, but I like to mix it and a classic Rye ‘N Ginger, plus a little bitters for some extra fun. Now if only I could come up with a name for it…
- 2oz Angel’s Envy Rum Cask Finished Rye Whiskey
- 4oz Old Tyme Ginger Beer
- Really Horrible Hellfire Bitters
- 1 Lime Wheel
Combine all liquid ingredients in a rocks glass with one large ice cube and give it a stir. Garnish with a lime wheel, or just toss it right in. It’s a little sweet, a little spicy, and it’ll kick Monday right in the ass.
