Dark and Stormy cocktail

Type: Cocktail

The Dark and Stormy cocktail is simple, with only three ingredients, but getting the right measures of each is crucial. A popular cocktail using dark rum, which is key to the Dark and Stormy’s rich flavour and deep colour. Using ginger beer (not ginger ale) gives the cocktail its intense ginger flavour; you want it to be brewed and fermented but non-alcoholic. Make sure the lime juice is freshly squeezed - avoid bottled lime juice as they often have added preservatives and other chemicals and lack the freshness of squeezed juice.

Bellini

A Bellini cocktail is a combination of Prosecco and peach puree that originates in Venice, Italy. It is thought that the Bellini was first created sometime between 1934 and 1948 by a Giuseppe Cipriani, who was the founder of Harry′s Bar in Venice. The drink got its name from the unique pink colour that is said to have reminded him of the toga worn by a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini.

An official IBA cocktail, the Bellini is a popular drink served around the world and was originally made using pureed white peaches. The pink hue was obtained by adding a small amount of raspberry or cherry juice.  Today various recipes exist for a Bellini, including those that replace pureed peaches with peach nectar or peach schnapps – especially when the fresh peach is out of season.
