This is a variation of the classic
“Dark & Stormy” cocktail, with the light and bubbly
kiss of champagne. A great cocktail to serve
on board ships or boats, as ginger helps to combat seasickness.
2 to 3 pieces of fresh shaved ginger (or ˝ ounce ginger juice)
4 lime quarters
5 to 7 mint leaves
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ˝ ounces of light rum
˝ cup sugar
˝ cup hot water
This simple mixture of sugar and water in equal parts is a
base ingredient for many cocktails. Make some in advance;
it can be stored in your refrigerator for weeks.
Stormy Ginger Fizz
In a cocktail glass, muddle the fresh ginger with the lime
quarters, mint leaves and simple syrup. (Use a muddler or
a back of a spoon. Add the rum and ice and shake vigorously.
Pour into a champagne highball glass and top off with a brut
champagne. Serve with a straw.
In a small bowl, glass or empty, clean wine bottle combine
the sugar with the hot water and stir, or shake bottle, until
sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool completely before
