The Perfect Storm

This fantastic Fall creation is a spiced up version of the Dark n' Stormy cocktail. I left in just enough of the original ingredients to keep the integrity of the classic; dark rum and ginger beer. I replaced the lime juice with apple cider, and because I like things a little sweet added a little simple syrup. Throw in a few dashes of lemon bitters, and you've got yourself the perfect storm!


  • 2 oz Dark Spiced Rum

  • 2 oz Apple Cider

  • 1 tsp Simple Syrup

  • Dash of Lemon Bitters

  • 4 oz Ginger Beer

  • Cinnamon Stick

  • Apple Slices



  1. Fill glass with ice.

  2. Add spiced rum, simple syrup, apple cider, and bitters.

  3. Top with ginger beer and stir gently with cinnamon stick.

  4. Garnish with apple slices.

  5. Leave the cinnamon stick in the drink for extra flavor.


Serve in:

Moscow Mule mug or any tall glass
