read, cook, eat (and drink) November 2009: Dark and Stormy

November 11, 2009

Since this month’s edition comes on Remembrance Day, I’m remembering my grandfather, Frederic Earl Ross, in an imagined scene from his service in the Canadian navy. He’s passed now, so a toast. His nickname, though I suspect it was ironic, was Stormy. And since he also liked his Lamb’s Navy, here’s a cocktail he would probably have thought too fancy, but he wouldn’t let it go to waste.

Lamb's Navy RumDark & Stormy

Tall glass, ice
A jigger of rum (Lamb’s navy if you’ve got it and don’t be shy)
A healthy squeeze of lime
Fill with ginger beer (the biting hot kind, Jamaican; it should hurt a little)

Now tip your head back. Here’s to you and yours on Remembrance Day.

In case your whetted whistle craves something else, Lamb’s has a different version and some other cocktail recipes right here.
