Dark & Stormy – Spiced Rum Bacon
It was a dark and stormy night. The pirate captain gathered his crew, and said, “tonight we rest up for adventure on the morrow as I tell you a tale that will make your mouths turn to water: the legend of the best bacon I’ve ever had…”
This is a recipe straight from the deepest heart of the Bermuda Triangle. Is that really even a thing? Seems like just a function of bad navigation and storms before radar. We actually envision someone with a deep voice commanding “Bacon, Bacon, SUNDAY!” and then gleefully chomping a piece of this amazing after-hours bacon.
For those not familiar with this lesser known cocktail, it a bit like a Moscow mule, if Russians were French pirates hiding in Jamaica who also loved ginger beer.
The ginger beer is lovely and calming and the dark rum has that deep and spicy kick. What a joy that reminds you of the islands or a nasty storm that makes you feel like battening down the hatches.
