  • 50 ml dark rum
  • 25 ml fresh lime juice plus a wedge to serve
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • 5 ml sugar syrup optional
  • 100 ml chilled ginger beer a good fiery variety


  • Put all the ingredients in a Collins or Highball glass over lots of ice, stir gently and garnish with a wedge of lime.


Minty mule Take inspiration from the mojito and mix up a dark & stormy twist with 50ml dark rum, 25ml lime juice, bitters and ginger beer served over crushed ice, garnished with a wedge of lime and a fragrant sprig of mint (for best results, give the mint a clap between your palms before tucking it into the drink as this will help to release the aromatic oils). Then add two straws and enjoy.
