Dark and Stormier

In light (or dark?) of these crazy storms in Charleston, I figured I’d make y’all a twist on a classic to match.


  •  1½ oz Gosling's Dark Rum

  • ¾ oz Fresh Lime Juice

  • Goslings Ginger Beer

  • 5 Drops Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub

  • 1 pinch of Cinnamon

  • 1 Barspoon Fresh Grated Ginger

  • 1 Sprig Fresh Thai Basil


Combine all ingredients except for ginger beer in a shaking tin with ice.  Shake for 5 seconds.  Double strain and pour into any glass over crushed ice. Top with Gosling’s Ginger Beer.  Garnish with a cinnamon stick and basil sprig. Serve and enjoy.
