If this drink sounds vaguely familiar it’s because it’s the fraternal twin of the Dark and Stormy. This one, mis queridos amigos, unlike the Dark and Stormy, has a bit of a bite!
Since it’s October, and I’ve been working a bit of a beer theme, I thought I’d keep it going with this cocktail. Part beer, part rum, with the additional Latin twist of jalapeño and lime. This is the perfect early fall barbecue drink because it’s got heft and spark! And, did I mention that it tastes terrific?
To make two: Cut a lime into eighths, and remove the stems and seeds from one jalapeño and cut it into a small dice. Divide into two bar glasses and muddle the jalapeño and lime in each one. Add ice, 1 and half to two ounces of rum, and shake. Pour into two prepared glasses, and top with about 4 to 6 ounces each of the beer. Garnish with lime, additional jalapeño if you like, and serve! ¡Buen provecho! Enjoy!
