That’s a no-no.
Ready to start the Dark ‘n Stormy + Ginger Beer testing, I reached into the liquor closet and was shocked, I tell you I was shocked, to find only one bottle of rum and that one and only bottle is on fumes.
I keep a pretty full liquor cabinet – always the basics – gin, vodka, whiskys of several varieties, rum, PIMMS, tequila, wines, some liqueurs – and when something reaches a quarter, I put a full bottle behind it, always sure there’s a back-up.
So, I ask again. Which one of you came here and cleaned me out of rum?? I don’t want to name names, but I have some pretty good ideas.
Fortunately, there was enough Mount Gay to make two light, very light, Dark ‘n Stormy’s, to test with Maine Root. We came inside just in time – the sky opened and it’s pouring.
Feet up. Let the testing begin. I guess after this one, I’ll have to switch liquor and try a Moscow Mule + Ginger Beer test because I DO have plenty of vodka. A certain long-ago memory of switching liquor mid-stream didn’t end well. 🙂
