5 o’clock cocktail || dark & stormy
Bermuda’s national drink the Dark’n’Stormy comes complete with a trademark. It is simple to make, consisting of three things: 1] dark rum over ice with some 2] ginger beer / ale and served with a 3] slice of lime. Some places add lime juice into the mix, I say stick with the original version. The one photographed above was enjoyed at Le Bar in the Sofitel here in Chicago. For $13.00 you get a cocktail some tasty bar snacks and to enjoy it in a cozy library-esque lobby bar of dark wood panel walls and deep purple upholstery with views over the park. Good people watching.
