Three White Stripes

Strong and Stormy Slushy

Nutrition Facts for Maya Feller's recipes

The Dark ‘n Stormy is a classic highball traditionally made with a robust, Caribbean style dark rum and spicy ginger beer. It’s as simple as a mixed drink gets, but those two opposing flavors create a heavy dose of complexity…and deliciousness! 

For this version we're making a slushy and using Reed's Strongest Ginger Beer. Stongest has 3 times the fresh ginger root of their Original and the result = SPICAAAAAY (that’s like extra spicy). With all that ice, you need the spice! Make sure to also have a very deep, dark, robust rum to counterbalance those big flavors. I also like to add a little lime juice and a touch of salt to brighten all of the ingredients.  

The beauty of this version is that it can be batched out so you can serve a number of people at the same time. What’s better than an ice cold slushy cocktail? Um, 8 of them.  Enjoy this with some friends throughout the first weeks of a warmer than usual fall. The Strong ‘n Stormy will no doubt help you to weather the storm of all that ails you!
