DARK AND STORMY
The classic Dark and Stormy is a summertime staple that matches the molasses-rich flavors of dark rum with the spice of ginger beer. Lime juice can be adjusted to taste, but at The Stables Bar in Australia, they squeeze about half a lime for best results.
2 oz. dark Bermuda rum (Gosling’s)
½ oz. fresh lime juice
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon
Garnish: lime slice
Mix the ingredients together in the glass. Add ice and stir until chilled. Garnish.

PINK lemonade margarita
This pink lemonade margarita is a refreshing drink that will take you back into time and remind you of adolescent summers (with the addition of the adult favorite tequila!)
1 (12 ounce) can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 (12 ounce) cans of cold water – (just use the empty pink lemonade can)
1 (12 ounce) can of tequila
1/2 (12 ounce) can of Grand Marnie
Ice cubes – or crushed ice
Salt to rim the glasses
1 lime, wedged
Pour the (thawed) frozen lemonade concentrate into a pitcher, and fill the can with cold water. Pour into the pitcher and repeat twice for a total of 3 cans of water. Fill the can with tequila, and pour that into the pitcher. Fill about half of the can with Grand Marnier, and pour it into the pitcher. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Or blend mixture with ice to make a frozen version. Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses with a lime wedge!
