We kick off this 12 Cocktails of Christmas series on the first day of winter with a Dark and Stormy made with El Dorado rum and Chill St gingerbeer. Since we're not just kicking off the series, but also celebrating the first day of Winter, we wanted something extra bold and spicy to get us going. Eric suggested using orange instead of lime, which was amazing, and he made a demerara and molasses syrup as the sweetener.
I was so excited when Eric agreed to join me on this adventure. We've known each other for a few years from the restaurant and event industry, but we hadn't had the chance to work together in the past. This first video was a challenge as we fell into our rhythm, but I think we get better as the process goes on.
I was also excited to be able to use this series to explore some new spirits and cocktails, and play with some classics. This Dark and Stormy definitely comes out as one of my top faves of the whole series, but I can't wait to find out what you think of the cocktails we've selected to take us all into the New Year.
