Backyard Boozin’

With the weather in Sacramento projected to be a spectacular 89 degrees this weekend, we are taking full advantage and BBQ-ing with our friends.

To make it a little special, I’m thinking about mixing up a summer-y cocktail. One of my favorite summertime beverages is my own version of the “Dark and Stormy.”

Fill a highball glass with ice cubes. Add golden rum and then lemonade. Float a layer of the dark rum on top by pouring it over the back of a wide, flat spoon. Garnish with a slice of lemon. 

 

  • 1 juicy lemon for garnish
  • 1 ounce golden rum, (recommended: Mount Gay)
  • 6 ounces freshly squeezed lemonade
  • 1/2 ounce dark rum, (recommended: Meyers’s)

Enjoy!
