Dark and  Stormy

Hangover I have
Is frightful, the Post Office
Queue is just spiteful.

Name: Dark and Stormy
Type: booze
Recipe: Ice in a glass, pour to two inches from the top with some alcoholic ginger beer then float some dark rum on top (typically 8 oz ginger to 2 oz rum, but do what you like)
Venue: house

Review/notes: We had this, the national drink of Bermuda (the Dark and Stormy), on our first trip abroad together (for our 14th anniversary with the hopes that the Millenium Bug would leave us stranded there). They were absolutely wretched and sold pre-mixed in cans in the few shops we could find open during our holiday stay (at the time — and probably now as well — Bermuda shuts down over the holidays).

This version of the Dark and Stormy, on the other hand, was actually sublime although the actual recipe (I got it from the Mr Boston) is copyrighted and calls for two specific ingredients I don’t have easy access to.  Still, it is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone.  Especially if they spent the day getting their blood sugar to stabilise after a weekend bender.

The run was 3.2 miles to the Toys ‘R’ Us then the Decathlon Sport, but I didn’t find what I was looking for (I drew someone in the Secret Santa pool who is impossible to buy something for and thought ‘games’ would work but I think she’s just going to get a bottle of rum).
