Bryan has a fully stocked bar in his bedroom and is always wanting to make fancy drinks - which is perfect because I'm always down to sip on something scrummy. Last night we decided to try these babies out. If you like sweet and refreshing I would def give these a try!


what you'll need:

  • 1 lemon wedge and raw sugar for the rim
  • ice
  • 1 1/2 oz light rum
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 4 oz good quality ginger beer
  • about 1/4 oz dark rum (kracken is yummy)

how to make it:

  • moisten the outside edge of a highball glass with the lemon wedge
  • sprinkle a little raw sugar on a small plate and dip the moistened rim in the sugar to coat it
  • fill the glass and a cocktail shaker with ice
  • add the light rum, lemon juice and simple syrup to the shaker and shake vigorously
  • strain into the prepared glass and top with the ginger beer
  • float the dark rum on top by pouring it over the back of a spoon into the glass
  • serve and drink up!

keep in mind:

  • if you like sweet drinks you will like this
  • if you don't like sweet drinks you will still like this
