How to Make a Rum and Ginger Cocktail:

Rum and Ginger is just a simple twist on the Dark and Stormy and made a little more simple.  

Fill a glass with ice, add three parts ginger ale and one part dark rum. I prefer Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum. Give it a stir and you are all set. 

Dark and Stormy cocktails are traditionally made with ginger beer and lime juice along with the rum. You can garnish your Rum and Ginger with lime if you like.

A Rum and Ginger is my husband’s go to cocktail and it’s so tasty. It seriously doesn’t get any easier than this. If you are more into fruity cocktails, like I am, our Pineapple Rum Punch is almost as easy with the addition of pineapple juice.
