This cocktail was adapted from the classic ‘Dark & Stormy’ traditionally made with dark rum. We felt that a lighter aged golden rum, coupled with fresh lime and Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower cordial would provide an interesting contrast to the traditional cocktail. The Belvoir Fruit Farms Ginger Beer and lime pair beautifully together and the Belvoir Friut Farms Elderflower cordial adds both a floral note and touch of sweetness to the drink, providing an beautifully balanced alternative to the classic cocktail.
