This is a play on the Dark and Stormy but fairly unique.

Old Viscosity Strong Ale. Dark Rum. Ginger. Lemon.

The Old Viscosity is a super dark strong black ale. If you can't find it, sub a dark Porter or a dry stout.

You need to make some strong ginger simple syrup.

Shot of good dark rum like Goslings
Juice of half a lemon or more if you like it, I do
A short shot of the simple syrup
The rest of the glass will have the ale in it.
Serve with a chunk of candied ginger in a tooth pick.

The ale should be more chilled than you would keep it normally.

I have been experimenting with this and this is about as close as I have gotten to the one at Craft & Commerce.

It really is all about balance and that is why I like so much of the lemon juice, it pulls it together because of the sweetness brought in with the syrup.

I always prefer to have a Red wine, rum with soda. I am not a chain drinker but I would always like to drink this kind of drink combination.

My wife won this bottle of Leblon Cachaca, a Brazilian rum made from cane sugar. Neither of us had heard of it before. It is used in Brazil's signature drink, the Caipirinha. Cachaca, lime juice, sugar. Refreshing and addictive.

I love Caipirinhas especially during the warm summer months. But my favorite summer drink is still, my reining champ, the Cadillac Margarita:

Blanco or silver tequila
Fresh squeezed lime juice
Superfine sugar (to ease the tartness, usually a tsp)
Ice in a mixer (usually about three ice cubes for the size glass I use.)
Grand Marnier poured on top

Writing this just ignited my desire for one! Why not, it is summer!

I drink Negroni's like they're going out of style, and use the typical 1:1:1 ratio. But I'd say the orange is more than important, it's critical - it's not the same drink without it, primarily due to the essence of the peel...
