Crafted Cocktail: Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer, Dark & Stormy

Here is something a little different from the usual. Thank ya o The Baddish Group for sending me some Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer and for sparking the idea for this post. One of my favorite types of liquor is rum especially dark rum so here I crafted a Dark & Stormy, 3 1/3 oz ginger beer (Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer), 2 oz dark rum (Pusser’s Rum), and 1/2 oz lime juice (Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice). Fill a highball glass with ice, add dark rum atop ginger beer then add lime juice, mix thoroughly and garnish with a lime wedge. Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer has a 4.8% ABV whereas most ginger beers used to not. The Dark & Stormy is a is light sort of brown copper color with a big aroma of ginger and little notes of the lime and dark rum. It has a pronounced ginger flavor with a nice following of light lime dark rum right behind all the ginger beer with an alcoholic ginger finish and similar aftertaste with a light lime coming through with a halfway medium mouthfeel. This is not as boozy as it would seem but it’s a little boozier than a standard Dark & Stormy due to the Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Overall this was a nice taste Dark & Stormy cocktails, gets a B+. Yes sure there will always be something better out there but right now this Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer, Dark & Stormy is really good. Please enjoy responsibly. Cheers!
