Dark & Stormy


A robust ginger kick with undeniably refreshing qualities.

The Moscow Mule's fame is well-deserved; it boasts a robust ginger kick and undeniably refreshing qualities. You might observe that this recipe calls for slightly less lime juice than a typical sour-style cocktail. This adjustment pays homage to the original recipe, which consists of a straightforward combination of vodka and ginger beer topped with a dash of lime—a closer relative to a highball than a traditional sour cocktail. Furthermore, ginger's potent flavour carries a zing akin to citrus, so when we incorporate it, we often reduce the amount of lemon or lime juice in the cocktail to allow ginger to take the spotlight.

50ml Dark Rum

12.5ml Fresh Lime Juice

Ginger Beer

3 dashes of Bitters

Garnish: Lime Wheel
