Spice up summer weekends with The Stormy Ditch, our take on The Dark and Stormy (a classic Bahamian cocktail of dark rum and ginger beer). In our version, fresh ginger juice blends with lime and bourbon for an unbeatable punch of flavor. That might sound exotic and hard to find, but just swing by your local juice bar to get that good ginger juju.
The Stormy Ditch Makes 1 cocktail
1½ ounces bourbon ¾ ounce lime juice ½ ounce fresh ginger juice 1 ounce simple syrup 3 ounces club soda 1 lime wheel, for garnish
In a rocks glass filled with ice, combine the bourbon, lime juice, ginger juice and simple syrup and stir briefly. Top with club soda and garnish with the lime wheel. Serve immediately.
