This Blackberry Dark & Stormy cocktail has just 4 simple ingredients: dark rum, blackberries, lime juice and ginger beer, but it’s as complex as its name implies.
This cocktail is so good, there’s pretty much no way you’ll get away with only drinking one.
The first time I made this recipe, I was having some girlfriends over and we wanted to try something new. Blackberries were in season in Oregon, so I had a bunch sitting in a bowl on my counter, just beckoning for me to turn them into something delicious.
I didn’t want to fuss with mixing up a simple syrup with the blackberries (which you can certainly do if you have the time), so I just tossed them into my cocktail shaker and muddled them with my favorite agave syrup.
The outcome was amazing. I ended up making a pitcher full of this cocktail that night and we drank every last drop.
It’s now my favorite cocktail and I make it regularly to sip on the back patio after work.
