Mid Century Drink Day!

Yeah!!  Today is definitely a day to celebrate my weekly holiday, Mid Century drink day.  It was one of those long and endless days that seems somewhat brighter now with the thought of a nice refreshing drink.  But alas, I didn't have time to do the normal bar-aid prep, so the drink will be a house favorite.  The Dark and Stormy. 

The Dark and Stormy is delicious and SUPER easy to make.  Here is the recipe!

1 jigger Goslings dark rum
1 bottle of ginger beer
1 lime.

See with three ingredients, how hard can it be.  I'm rather particular...well about most things LOL...but in this instance the brand of ginger beer.  For now I am using Archer brand from Target which is not bad, but stay away from the Goya "Jamaican Style" Ginger beer that you can find at Wal-mart.  Serious Yak!  My favorite is Saranac brand which I can only seem to find at Total Wine but sadly we are out. :(  I quickly gathered everything together.  My dining room table is a little filled with resell junk at the moment so we will move this to the living room desk.

 See my new (to me) mini bullet planter....kinda awesome right!?   I'm rather excited too because I get to use my new (to me again) monkey bottler opener.  (I love it now but at first I was like...I don't know...looks a little serial killer bondage barbie doll head to me...don't worry it grows on you)  I digress....back to the drink...

First fill you glass all the way up with ice.  Check!

Next measure and pour one jigger of Gosling's dark rum.  Check!

Open and top glass off with ginger beer.  Check!

Add a quarter of lime...squeeze and drop.  Check and check!  (I have an unnatural love of lime, I like double/triple)

Tah-dah!  Here is your drink ready to serve.  On a side note....don't worry I'm not two fisting it...the day wasn't THAT bad...the other is for Mr. Honey.

If you make it, I hope you enjoy it!

Ciao for now!
