Dark N’ Stormy :
The Dark and Stormy cocktail was not born from the windy blackness of London, nor was it created in a barroom catering to the alcoholic needs of woebegone writers. In fact, it has nothing to do with bad literary tropes and gothic language. The Dark and Stormy is a drink that came to be in the Caribbean waters, where rum is plentiful and so are sailors. It’s a drink that was spit out by the sea, more or less. It’s a drink with a really cool name.
- 2 oz. dark rum
- 3 oz. 1642 Ginger Beer
- 1/2 oz. lime juice (optiona)
- Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Add rum.

Moscow Mule :
- 2 oz. vodka
- 1/2 oz. lime juice, freshly squeezed
- 6 oz. Ginger Beer 1642
- Squeeze lime juice into a copper mug (or a Collins glass) and drop in the spent shell.
- Add ice cubes, then pour in the vodka and fill with cold ginger beer.
- Serve with a stirring rod.
The Moscow Mule practically crackles from its chill. In the dead of winter, it’ll cut into the haze of your groggy, tired mind like the edge of a Siberian glacier. In the last humid dregs of summer, the frosty, copper mug will bite at your fingertips. It is a worthy use of vodka. And for all the pomp and circumstance surrounding it—the copper mug, the stirring rod—it’s about as simple as a cocktail can be: spirit, mixer, and citrus. Vodka for the bitter bite, ginger beer for a sweet snap, and lime to round out the ensemble. Note that ginger ale is not equal to ginger beer, but what the hell, use in case of emergency. Then, drink your Moscow Mule while debating the extent of geopolitical meddling by our Russian comrades, or while ruminating on anything but
politics. Na zdarovje
