Welcome to the weekend! It's quittin' time and I bet you could use a drink to start your weekend off right. Am I right?
This week I have been dreaming of sunny places with warm, sandy beaches. Spring fever? Not sure. But since I can't be in those places this weekend I figured I would mix a little something up that I can sip in my backyard and hopefully it will give me a little of that island feeling.
If you like a Dark and Stormy, you'll love the Tropical Storm! Grab your flip-flops and head for the hammock.
2 ounces golden or dark rum
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup ginger beer
squeeze of lime
2 dashes Angostura bitters (they're back!!!)
Fill a tall glass with ice. Add rum, juice, and ginger beer and give everything a quick stir. Finish with a squeeze of lime and a couple of dashes of bitters. Relax!
