- 2 oz Aged Rum
- 2 oz Ginger Beer
- ½ tsp Tamarind Paste
- 1 dash Orange Bitters
- Pour the ginger beer into an Old-Fashioned Glass. Shake the rum, tamarind paste and orange bitters, with ice, in a Cocktail Shaker. Strain over the ginger beer and add 1 ice cube.
There’s a storm a shaking! This sophisticated version of the Dark & Stormy is unworldly. The classic Dark & Stormy is only two ingredients (rum and ginger beer). This version, using tamarind paste, adds more depth, complexity, and richness to the cocktail. The extra effort affords a sour plum component and compliments the sharp spice of the ginger beer and the sweetness of the rum. If it’s hot and muggy this summer with no storm on the horizon, then make your own, by mixing up a Tamarind Storm. Cheers!
