Winter storms Juno and Octavia pale in comparison to our new “Dark and Snowy” cocktail hybrid. Think dark and stormy meets hot toddy; this combination of the classic dark rum and ginger beer pairing is heating up with a splash of hot water and sweet ginger simple syrup. Finished off with a hint of lime , the Dark and Snowy is served warm enough to melt that fresh layer of ice on your side walk. Enjoy!
