Yesterday afternoon was a tad chilly and a bit drizzley but by the time Hayley and I left the gym it was a full on dark and mildly (don’t want to be too dramatic here) stormy night. We were feeling accomplished, sweaty, and thirsty. Given the moodiness of the weather, a Dark + Stormy seemed like it would have been especially fitting. A delicious sippable treat on a rainy night.
The Dark + Stormy is one of Hayley’s favorite drinks and we love to make this version with Maine Root ginger beer- it’s a peppery and crisp non-alcoholic soda that is great for this cocktail. Sadly, we only dreamt of getting cozy with this drink because we didn’t have any dark rum. Oh well. Water is probably better after a workout anyway.
However! Tomorrow night I’m meeting some out-of-town friends for drinks and I know what I’ll be whetting my whistle with!!
Happy Friday! Blair
