This smooth drink was the cocktail of the month at BevMo. Or was it a Total Wine? Either way, if you’re a Rum fan then give this drink a try!
1.5 out Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum (or any dark rum will do)
1 ounce lemon juice
0.5 ounce simple syrup
Two dashes Angostura bitters
2 ounces ginger beer (or diet if you prefer)
Slice of lime
Muddle strawberry, simple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and add rum. Shake and strain over ice in a Collins glass. Top with ginger beer and two dashes of bitters. Garnish with a slice of lime.
