Pomegranate Dark & Stormy Cocktail
Posted on Friday, February 28th, 2014
Alcoholic Ginger Beer. When I was asked to review Crabbie’s Ginger Beer, I quickly said – yes please! I really enjoy ginger beer in cocktails, and had never tried one that was alcoholic. Crabbie’s is 4.8 % – similar to a regular beer. I had some pomegranate-infused rum on hand, and decided to make a quick and easy Pomegranate Dark & Stormy Cocktail variation.
But first, I tried the Crabbie’s Ginger Beer on its’ own, and found it a very pleasant sip. The fermented beer taste balanced with the moderate ginger spice and sweet honey-like flavor. With a big squeeze of lime, I was happy already.
And I was even happier with this Pomegranate Dark & Stormy.
Pomegranate Dark & Stormy
- 2 ounces Pomegranate Rum
- 4 ounces Crabbie’s Ginger Beer
- big squeeze of lime
Give everything a gentle mix in your serving glass, and add some ice. Garnish with a lime slice.
- 2 cups pomegranate arils
- 2 cups good quality rum
Place the ingredients in a quart sized glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Store away from heat and light. Give a gentle shake daily. After two weeks, strain and pour into a clean bottle.
