This simple and delightful cocktail is the perfect drink to enjoy on a hot and humid summer afternoon as you wait for the skies to darken and storms to close in. It is yet another cocktail devised by the enterprising souls from Britain’s Royal Navy. As each sailor was given a ration of rum and a mug of ginger beer, what else might one do but mix the two and give birth to this classic, refreshing drink. Rule, Britannia! Looking for more? Check out the equally refreshing Queen’s Park Swizzle or our delightful Tamarind Storm. Cheers!
