Master mixologist Tona Palomino from New York’s WD-50 gets the credit for this grown up version of the Dark and Stormy (Gosling’s dark rum and Barritt’s ginger beer). Our taste test of the Stormy Weather found a refined version of an old favorite. More patent leather than boat shoe & far more potent than its counterpart from Bermuda. We recommend not operating heavy machinery after a couple of these.
2 oz. Amber Rum (Bacardi 8 works just fine)
1 oz. Carpano Antica sweet vermouth (we used Noilly Prat)
1 oz. Canton ginger liqueur
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, & stir well. Strain into a double old fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with oil spray from a lime peel, discard. Add an oz. or two of club soda. Stir lightly. (We used a twist of lime in the drink)
