Dead Weight


FOR LEAVING THE WORST BEHIND


Serves 1


In this Dark and Stormy-inspired highball, I top with bitters and swap the traditional dark rum for light as we emerge from the wreckage.


RECIPE:

2 oz. light rum

¾ oz. fresh lime juice

½ oz. simple syrup

Ice cubes

Ginger beer, to top

Angostura bitters, to float


1. Shake the rum, lime juice, and syrup together in a shaker tin with ice.

2. Strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice cubes.

3. Top with the ginger beer.

4. Dash enough Angostura bitters over the drink so a thin line of bitters sits on top.
