A simply smashing Light 'n Stormy

You've heard of a Dark 'n Stormy, a delightful drink made of dark rum and ginger beer, but an equally fantastic adult beverage can be made using light rum. Simply substitute your favorite white rum in lieu of dark and voila! A refreshingly light rum-tastic cocktail.

Light 'n Stormy

  • A few ounces of light rum
  • A few ounces of ginger beer
  • Ice
  • Lime wedge or a splash of lime juice, optional

Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Pour in a few ounces of light rum and top with ginger beer, to taste. Add a splash of lime juice or garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.

I used a 1:1 ratio of light rum to ginger beer. I used Captain Morgan's new White Rum and Crabbie's ginger beer (a ginger beer that actually contains alcohol!).
