Dark and Stormy - Chinese Five Spice Rum 28 Oct 2012
5:13 am

Somewhere along the way I read that when making a “Dark and Stormy” you should build your drink by adding the ginger beer FIRST to the ice and then top off with the dark colored rum.  This then creates a dark, swirly, stormy looking sky in your cocktail glass. Of course, you would need to add a straw/stir stick so that the person drinking could mix it up a bit after admiring the “stormy” effects. It is kind of cool looking.
