If this week’s episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta was a cocktail, it would definitely be the classic “Dark ‘n Stormy.” Jhonni and Masika are ready for war. Kiyomi and Teresa are at odds. And Bow flies into a destructive rage, which has everyone talking! Watch the tempers flare and the drama unfold while sipping on this rum-based cocktail that gets a bit of spice from the ginger beer. WE put our own twist on the drink with a splash of pineapple juice and dubbed it “The Storm’s a-Coming.”
Recipe: The Storm’s a-Coming
- 2 ounces dark rum (preferably Gosling’s)
- 2 ½ ounces chilled pineapple juice
- ½ ounce fresh lime juice (optional)
- 3 ounces chilled ginger beer
- 1 lime wedge, for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add rum, pineapple juice and lime juice and shake well. Strain into a rocks or old-fashioned glass. Stir in the ginger beer. Garnish the cocktail with the lime wedge.
