This month’s cocktail is a little different. In celebration of the new Star Wars movie being released this month, I thought I would make a cocktail inspired by the ever adorable droid, BB-8. The Dark and Stormy is a REALLY simple cocktail, using only rum and ginger beer and a garnish of lime (and blueberry in this instance).
Fill the glass to mostly full with your favorite ginger beer and some ice. I recommend Bundaberg. It’s pretty good. Then, top it off by slowly pouring in the rum. I used 1-2 shots, depending on the person’s preference.
Pouring the rum in slowly allows the alcohol to sit nicely on top of the ginger beer to create that layered effect.
To garnish this cocktail, I quartered a lime and used a toothpick to hold in a blueberry to recreate BB-8’s little head. Use a knife to adjust the lime to sit on the glass.
Use this drink to pregame before the big opening night!
