Perfect Storm

Perfect storm rum cocktail with limes
Matthew Kelly/Supercall

A spin on the classic Dark and Stormy—a blend of dark rum, lime and ginger beer—the Perfect Storm adds one small but important ingredient: Angostura bitters. Not only do they keep with the Caribbean theme of the drink, they also add an impressive amount of aromatics, which only enhance the rich taste of dark rum and ginger spice.
