thunder1While I was in Cincinnati this past weekend dropping off my little one, my brother made me a drink.  He said it was a must try and his new favorite. I said “Well ok, just one.” While we will not discuss just how many I had, we will say that I loved it.

You will need one cocktail glass

  • One ginger beer(you can get this easily at Trader Joe’s)
  • ice to fill your glass
  • Captain Morgan’s Rum OR Captain Morgan’s Parrot Bay Coconut Rum

Now, let me say I was served the regular Captain Morgans. It was very good and very refreshing and I loved the ginger beer instead of a coke. The original drink is called a “Dark and Stormy” if you would rather just order it while out. I loved it but when I got home I wanted to try this with the coconut rum!

thunder2So here is the ratio: Fill with ice, pour almost half full with the rum and the rest fill with the ginger beer.  Take you your favorite stir stick and stir. I loved them both!!

I think I will call my creation a Dirty Thunder, because I can, little brother, yes I can!

thunder3Send me a comment and let me know which version you liked best!!
