I thought Irene was going to be a fun-filled day of scrabble by candlelight and napping between eating non perishable foods but instead I got called into work. Ya, I know. That Sucks!
I just got home to find Ron and Penny napping without me. Jerks.
I did tell him not to drink all the rum because I wanted to have a few Dark & Stormy drinks waiting for me!!
A simple highball-style cocktail, the Dark and Stormy is made with one part dark rum to four parts ginger beer. The smooth, rich warmth of the rum pairs beautifully with the spicy-sweet snap of the ginger beer, and everything takes on a refreshing chill when topped up with ice.
If you want a truly authentic taste, use Gosling’s Black Seal rum and Barritts ginger beer. Both brands are local to Bermuda and purists swear by them. (In fact, many will say that a drink made any other way is not a Dark and Stormy.) But authentic or not, any good-quality dark rum and any spicy, zippy ginger beer will make for a very tasty drink.

I kinda feel a little let down with this storm. We had no power outage, no evacuation, a few tree limbs down but that is about it. Now I know some people have had property damage and yes I do feel bad for them, I am not an asshole but I would have liked a little more out of Irene.
My Newport friends have been posting pictures of the water and it makes me home sick…….you all suck. Thanks.
Now back to TV and a snoring husband, enjoy.
